MySQL only!

Feature: MySQL only!
Developer: Arantor
Target: modders, themers, admins
Status: 100% (complete.)
Comment:

PostgreSQL and SQlite are great database systems. But they just aren't used that much, and they add more complexity to database development in SMF. Wedge continues abstracting database queries, but doesn't attempt to convert them to another SQL language.
From our experience, users with PGSQL or SQlite installed on their server always have MySQL installed as well. If you really don't, Wedge just isn't for you, but we won't go back to applying patches for systems that no one really ever uses. It makes development tedious, longer, and probably insecure.

And they get paid what for every link...? Ten cents? Pathetic...

It might even be more like a dollar per 50 or something ridiculous. Wage equality is a long way away.

Poor people.

Hey Pete, I think there are a couple of topics waiting for your feedback if you have two minutes ;)

Take your time then.
Health is more important. Says Nao who's killing himself on the job :lol:

I... I really need to have Wedge ready and out by the end of the year. It's becoming an obsession to me.
I don't know what I'll do AFTER that (I'm certainly not going to provide support for it, but I'll do my best to keep developing & debugging it), but I know I want phase one to be over...

Interesting.
But Mysql is here to stay. If not, then it's forks will.
We write for real use. If the paradigm shifts to pgsql or whatever, then Wedge will offer such versions.
Right now we just don't think any server with pgsql installed would not already have Mysql installed as well. Focusing on one db system only allows us to save precious time for other features and for speed improvements.

Apple Server is not our typical deployment scenario anyway.
