DocLite now MIT licensed

Free PHP NoSQL database

DocLite, a powerful NoSQL database built on top of SQLite, is now MIT licensed as of the 1.0.5 release.

Previous versions were released under the GNU GPL v3 licence, however I realise for some people this is too restrictive and to be honest, I'm just happy to release something useful in to the open source community, I'm not really bothered what people choose to do with it.

DocLite is an actively maintained project to which I intend to add more features in the near future, so please feel free to check it out on my GitHub, clone it, fork it, play around with it and enjoy - this website runs on DocLite, it plays very nicely with Symfony and is suitable for a wide variety of use cases where you desire a NoSQL solution.

DocLite serves as a robust, ACID-compliant replacement for flat-file PHP databases such as SleekDB and a lightweight, local file system based alternative to more powerful NoSQL servers such as MongoDB.

The library is well documented and requires no PHP extensions beyond PDO SQLite.
