I'm happy to announce a new KMP-compatible NoSQL database 🚀, with the release of my Kotlin Multiplatform library for _Couchbase Lite_: Kotbase! Couchbase Lite is a JSON document database for mobile/embedded applications. Features include: • SQL++, key/value, and full-text search queries • Observable queries, documents, databases, and replicators • Binary document attachments (blobs) • Cloud-to-edge and peer-to-peer data sync Kotbase supports Android, JVM, iOS, macOS, Linux, and MinGW. Please check it out and discuss in #couchbase.

Do I have to pay for Kotbase/Couchbase Lite? Is it self-hostable? Is it free software?
I'm asking this because I quickly fell on which seems to be a paid only database

The community edition of both Couchbase Lite and Couchbase Server is free and open source. The enterprise edition requires a license for production use, but is free to develop with. You can self host either edition of Couchbase Server. My KMP Kotbase library is free and open source with no additional licensing required.

Just in time, we have a greenfield app we are developing and I’ll be proposing this.
