'Metakit' fills the gap between flat-file, relational, object-oriented, and tree-structured databases, supporting relational joins, serialization, nested structures, and instant schema evolution. There is a C++ API, a Python binding (Mk4py), and a Tcl binding (Mk4tcl). Data files are portable, use auto-sizing ints and strings, and can efficiently store binary data from single bits to multi-Mb objects. MetaKit works well for moderate-size (a few dozen Mb) datasets, and offers excellent performance well beyond that size when its column-wise data model is fully taken advantage of.
