Plans for 2019 are to release two products.

1. A text-based strategy game engine that will act as the core of two or more progressive web applications, using Node.js/Express, EJS, and SCSS. It will be proprietary, subscription-based, and playable 24/7 online or offline as a web site or mobile app with nightly/weekly/monthly events and items (think KoL, on steroids, with butter on top.)

I am currently undecided whether to go with MongoDB, MySQL or PostgreSQL, so any feedback - without derailing the other choices, and understanding that it needs to be minimal at first with the ability to expand to millions of users - would be appreciated.

2. I'm sculpting collectors figurines of guinea pigs, molding, casting and then selling a limited set that are hand-painted by me with a certificate of authenticity, as well as marketing blank versions of each with a choice of three colors (including white, and either red or black for eyes - a total of five) for people to either paint by themselves, family members, or friends.

This will also have a website that allows you to choose the breed and colors (changing the picture according to your choices), as well as allowing people to use it as a social media outlet - as if their own guinea pigs had profiles instead of humans. It's also planned to support rescues worldwide and educate folks about properly caring for cavies.

    PostgreSQL is the most amazingly powerful open source database! I love it.

    Mongoose works perfect to connect nodejs and mongodb.

    I like this combination very much.

    @JackToolsNet - That's what I'm currently using. However, I'm not convinced about the long-term effectiveness of MongoDB and its document structure.

    Compass seems like a nice touch, however, if it's something different (no tables), why are they making it look like the same thing (tables) within the interface?

    @jeeper - And, that's something I've "toyed with" to get the Atlassian Server suite up and running on my VPS.

    Much like Mongoose does for MongoDB; PostgreSQL and MySQL have similar things you can use for ease-of-use models in a Node.js/Express app.
