Difference between PouchDB and SQLite

1. PouchDB :
PouchDB is an open-source, NoSQL, in-line database. It is designed after CouchDB, which is a NoSQL database that powers npm. It is written in JavaScript language. There is no need to perform queries over the network as PouchDB resides inside the browser and thus it makes it extremely faster. It stores data locally using IndexedDB and WebSQL in the browser.

2. SQLite :
SQLite is a software library that provides a relational database management system (RDBMS). It was designed by D. Richard Hipp on August 2000. The design goals of SQLite were to allow the program to be operated without installing a database management system (DBMS) or requiring a database administrator. The lite in SQLite means light weight in terms of setup, database administration, and required resource.
