Expo local Database


I want to know why expo choose Sqlite instead of Realm ? Because i read many articles about local database but most of the time realm is more performing.

SQLite and SQL are more established, stable and less proprietary. SQLite has also been open source for longer than Realm, and it’s fast enough for many cases. If SQLite isn’t fast enough, it’s more likely the workload is specific to your app and requires native tuning anyway. These are some of the reasons we believe it’s a better fit for an open source project like Expo. And you are welcome to detach and write a Realm module if you wish to bear the maintenance cost for it.
