A really slow database

Project description

stupidb Documentation Status

Are you tired of software that’s too smart? Try StupiDB, the stupidest database you’ll ever come across.

StupiDB was built to understand how a relational database might be implemented.

Systems like PostgreSQL are extremely complex. It’s hard for to me to imagine what implementing the simplest, stupidest core of something like PostgreSQL would look like, so I decided to write my own.


  • Stupid joins
  • Stupid window functions
  • Sophomoric group bys
  • Stupidly scales down
  • Doesn’t work with your microservice
  • No documentation
  • Not even close to 100% test coverage


  • Stupid simple in-memory format
  • Stupidly easy to read codebase
  • User defined aggregates, including custom stupid window aggregates
  • “Volanco” tuple-at-a-time model


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.


0.1.0 (2018-11-22)

  • First release on PyPI.
