Astro DB

Fred Schott

For the last year, we’ve been building a fully-managed SQL database platform for Astro. Now anyone can add a hosted database to their Astro project in seconds with everything working out-of-the-box:

  • TypeScript ORM, included (Drizzle!)
  • Schema management, included
  • Schema migrations, included (automatic!)
  • Lightweight local development
  • Hosted SQL database for production
  • Fully integrated into Astro
