2016-12-07 - An initial DBHub.io server is online, running our latest development code. Testing and feedback is encouraged.
Note - The data on this server will probably be wiped/reset every few days.
2016-11-30 - For everyone asking, the development code (with screenshots) is here. :)
2016-10-03 - Version 3.9.1 of DB Browser for SQLite released.
Welcome to DBHub.io.
The DB Browser for SQLite team are adding a "Cloud" storage service for people's SQLite databases. Completely optional of course. :)
Right now, there's nothing here. Over the next few alpha/beta releases for 3.10.0 we'll start adding features to make things work.
All the DBHub.io code will be Open Source, likely under the AGPL3.0 license.

Things we'd like DBHub.io to include
|Basic send/receive of SQLite databases from DB4S (SQLite Browser)|
|Management of uploaded files. eg delete, rename, etc|
|Online viewer/editor, with access controls|
|Teams + public/private databases|
|Versioning for databases + basic "diff" support|
|An "Issues" section (trouble ticketing) for your databases|
|Forks, Pull Requests, Merging as per GitHub model|
|Branches, as per the git concept|
|Support for email replys to comments, for Issues/PR's/etc|
|Drag & drop image support for Issues/PR's/etc|
|An API, so people can query/update their database from "Serverless" applications|
Completely undetermined at this stage. ;)
The concept GitHub uses for pricing - free for public stuff, $ for private - is appealing, but may not work for databases. At least initially everything will be free (thanks Rackspace!), which should give us a start towards understanding data usage patterns. With that we can develop a workable model, though it may take a few iterations.
Although widely used, DB Browser for SQLite is developed very sporadicly. The development team all have their own Real Lives™, some of which include things like 3 part time jobs to make ends meet.
DBHub.io is an experiment to see if we can build a sustainable (Community friendly) income model, to give DB Browser for SQLite a lot more love and attention. :)
Rackspace are sponsoring the hosting (thanks!) for the next few months, which gives us breathing room to try things out.
