+Project Title: High performance backend for IndexedDB in Node.JS with 
+Prerequisites:  Basic knowledge of JavaScript/TypeScript, basic familiarity
+with relational and non-relational databases.  Familiarity with SQL and
+node.js is a plus.
+IndexedDB is the standardized transactional database system for the Web
+platform.  Progressive Web applications and browser extensions use IndexedDB to
+manage large amounts of structured data.
+While IndexedDB is supported by a significant majority of browsers currently in
+use, support for IndexedDB in JavaScript applications outside of the browser is
+severely lacking.  This makes it difficult to write applications that use
+persistent transactional data storage and can run both in the browser and on
+other platforms such as Node.JS.
+The standardized API of IndexedDB is relatively small and simple when compared
+to SQL dialects, and as such it is relatively simple to write an implementation
+of IndexedDB.
+The idb-bridge package (developed as part of the GNU Taler project) already
+provides a TypeScript/Node.JS implementation of the IndexedDB API with a single
+JSON file as a backend.  However, this implementation suffers from major
+performance issues and does not support concurrent access.
+The goal of this project is to design, implement and benchmark a new storage
+backend for IndexedDB in TypeScript based on the existing bridge-idb project.
+A potential candidate for the improved storage backend is SQLite3, but other
+choices (such as LevelDB) can be evaluated as well.
