Mycelite: SQLite extension to synchronize changes across SQLite instances

Mycelite is a SQLite extension that allows for one-way synchronization between different instances of SQLite databases. Local-first applications combine the best features of local and client/server applications, offering speed and responsiveness while also enabling many desirable features of client/server systems. Actual Budget is an open-source personal finance application that exemplifies the local-first application model by offering a fast experience across multiple devices. However, building such applications is challenging, requiring synchronization-related code that implements and uses CRDTs. Nevertheless, the approach has significant potential, and efforts are underway to make building local-first applications easier in the future.
