I’m writing a new vector search SQLite Extension. Alex Garcia is working on sqlite-vec, a spiritual successor to his sqlite-vss project. The new SQLite C extension will have zero other dependencies (sqlite-vss used some tricky C++ libraries) and will work using virtual tables, storing chunks of vectors in shadow tables to avoid needing to load everything into memory at once.

VectorMagic. Neat online tool (with a Flex frontend) for tracing bitmap images in to vectors, based on research at the Stanford AI lab.
