Today I was chatting with a technical friend, and she mentioned
that she has a "todo" of writing a decent node.js driver for
MySQL. A bit more chatting back and forth, and
http://nodejsdb.org/db-drizzle/ was discovered. It was written to
use libdrizzle and drizzled, but since libdrizzle can talk to
MySQL, it should work for her needs as well.
I would love to see some work done on how well libmysql+mysqld, libdrizzle+mysqld, and libdrizzle+drizzled handle highly concurrent asynchronous event-oriented workloads such as those generated by all these new node.js applications.
I suspect that all sorts of surprising bugs will be discovered.
Please help us discover those bugs.
