RethinkDB In PR


Looking over .6 tags and the PR’s currently open, RethinkDB had an interesting announcement today: although it will still be available and slowly developed this is usually the sign of a project the community will quickly forget.


Yeah, seems like the it’s not going to be an on the list of official backend candidates.


Hi, now that RethinkDB has joined the Linux Foundation, would you reconsider ?


I don’t see a problem of adding this backend, but it’s also perfectly fine to have it as a separate repository for now. You can still use Cayley core with it as long as it implements our QuadStore interface.

As a note, contributions to RethinkDB are dropping constantly over time, so it might still be a sign of a project being deprecated.
