  • Does this mean I could have persistence of a few key objects now?

    I see an application I would like to build using Pixie to provide persistence for simple user, form and page objects in a CMS. Do you think its ready for use yet?

      Yeah, I think it is ready for use. Its got plenty of tests now, and the toplevel API at least hasn't changed, and I can't see it changing. Everything else that comes along will be bells and whistles on top of the basic functionality thats already there.

      Things like Indexing and complex queries can wait for the large part, because the ability to name objects can be used to get around the issue.
      Another reason why indexing can wait for now, is that the most common thing to do with an object database is to have a batch process run out-of-band and fetch the data from new or changed objects to insert into a RDBMS. At that point you have something you can query against for issues such as reporting.
