SQLite database

The Astro Content Layer


The developers of Astro web framework are planning to introduce a new "Content Layer" that will significantly improve handling of local and remote content. Currently, Astro uses a data structure that is stored entirely in memory, which can slow down cold-start times in serverless secure socket layer (SSR) environments. Astro is exploring the use of an embedded SQLite database to scale up content entries and to speed up development and build performance. A new, flexible data loader API called 'defineCollection()' is being developed to help define collections in Astro. This is expected to encourage the development of a community-driven ecosystem of 'loaders' as more developers adopt and integrate the new APIs into their projects.
