Using SQLite on lucianmarin.com is faster than using JSON, 43ms vs 56ms for the same request. Hmm… I have to make the switch someday.
I'm in love with SQLite, and I'm surprised so many django devs say it doesn't scale. At some point I'd like to look at the django ORM and understand why.
Maybe because Django closes the database connection after each query. Also writing to SQLite is slow, one thing at a time.
