I have written it down as a place to steal ideas from, which I plan to
do in the future as I mature more on the field, but irmin isn't a
solution, being written in OCaml.

Re: The database I wish I had 4 months ago

From EuAndreh to ~euandreh/public-inbox

I see what to mean by being accessible, and it does make sense.

If done properly this might be the reality, where nobody chooses to
handle conflicts manually because they'd rather have a consistent view
by picking one of the possible algorithms that are available for them to
pick for each attribute. I'll experiment with this a bit, and if 
feasible, the "perpetual inconsistency" might be an internal view, and
something available for those who choose to customize their conflict
resolution strategy. This would be ideal, and perfectly aligned with
what you said on "the application educating the storage layer about how
to handle most of the conflicts it encouters". The unique URL you showed
is a tempting challenge to reach, and the domain identity being
teachable sounds indeed really powerful.

Also a possible ergonomics layer that can be built on top of some lower level

Suppose we want to add a profile page to an app, but the user will be
able to edit their profile while offline.

Such profile page contains 3 parts: name, bio and links. Here's how it
could look like:

Here's what I was referring to when talking about "durable persistent
data structures": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cym4TZwTCNU

Re: The database I wish I had 4 months ago

I better get a POC so I can stop talking in "what ifs".

I was more focused on the storage implementation side of it, but I'm
considering not implementing a storage backend for this and just using
SQLite instead (more detailed in [0]).

Building durable persistent data structures on top of SQLite backed
storage is still a bit distant, but the model I presented could benefit
from a POC.

I'll try starting that instead of giving so much focus on storage, and
share it later.
