With today’s launch of KitaroDB 1.0, Synergex has also released an open source application that’s powered by KitaroDB. “Baconography” is a Reddit client for Windows 8. Using KitaroDB’s ability to store data on-disk, Baconography is able to provide an excellent user experience regardless of the status of the internet connection. Baconography’s source is available on github.com, and the application has been submitted to the Windows Store.
Plans for future KitaroDB versions include support for Linux and other platforms, support for records larger than 64K, and a specialized server edition. KitaroDB is provided free of charge, and support subscriptions are available. The basic support starts at $195 and goes upto $1995 for a business subscription with dedicated email and phone hours, hotfixes and update notifications.
“We’re extremely excited to introduce KitaroDB,” states Roger Andrews, CTO at Synergex. “It lets developers incorporate local storage for applications that might otherwise fall over if internet connections are lost. Plus, their local data stores are in the exact same format as they’d otherwise expect to use, which means a lot less coding, and a lot less room for error.”
