✨ Type-Safe | 💽 SQLite | 🔋 Batteries Included | 🧘 Flexible


Neboa (pronounced /ˈnɛβo̯a̝/, from Galician: «fog») is a simple, yet powerful, type-safe NoSQL database library for Node.js. It offers seamless data management with compile-time type-checking for enhanced reliability. Leveraging SQLite, Neboa ensures efficient and lightweight performance, making it perfect for Electron and other platforms. With its unique approach, Neboa empowers you to use a relational database as a NoSQL, providing the flexibility to harness the best of both worlds. Effortlessly manage your data and embrace a misty-smooth database experience.

Under the hood, Neboa makes use of better-sqlite3, a high-performance SQLite wrapper. This powerful tool allows Neboa to deliver optimal performance and ensure smooth interactions with the database. Whether you're building a desktop application with Electron or a web-based project, Neboa's reliable and efficient architecture has got you covered.

If you want to jump right in, you can install Neboa in your project and start using folliwing the steps below:

Install Neboa

npm install neboa

Create a new Neboa instance and initialize the database

import { neboa } from 'neboa';
const db = neboa('path/to/database.db');

Create a new collection

const Users = db.collection('users');

Insert a new document to the collection

const user = Users.insert({
