Description : distributed, peer to peer replicated database system
Prophet is a new kind of database designed for the post Web-2.0 world.
It's made to let you collaborate with your friends and coworkers without
needing any kind of special server or internet provider.
Prophet's buzzword-laden pitch reads something like this:
A grounded, semirelational, peer to peer replicated, disconnected,
versioned, property database with self-healing conflict resolution.
What that really means is that Prophet keeps your data in your control,
not on a server in a cloud, is designed for online and offline use,
syncs changes peer to peer in any way you can think of, and has a
pluggable conflict resolution system that allows application writers to
decide how to resolve conflicts during synchronization, using Prophet's
algorithm or any other.
If you're not a programmer, you likely want an end-user application
build on top of Prophet, rather than this package.
