SQLite: Protégé of PostgreSQL

SQLite has become the most widely deployed SQL database engine in the world, with over two billion installations providing SQL database services for cellphones, web-browsers, cameras, and countless other gadgets and applications. But SQLite is not in competition with PostgreSQL. Rather, PostgreSQL and SQLite complement each other, with each engine targeting a different class of problems.

SQLite can be thought of as a derivative of PostgreSQL. SQLite was originally written from PostgreSQL 6.5 documentation, and the SQLite developers still use PostgreSQL as a reference platform to verify that SQLite is working correctly.
