Overview

turtleDB is a JavaScript framework for developers to build offline-first, collaborative web applications. It provides a developer-friendly API to access an in-browser database built on top of IndexedDB.

It comes with built in document versioning and automatic server synchronization when paired with our back-end package tortoiseDB, as well as developer-controlled, flexible conflict resolution strategies for any document conflicts while collaborating.

You can check out our API documentation and read more about the story behind project itself here.

Note: for the best user experience we strongly recommend using Chrome.
