MongoDB buys Realm

In case you've been living under a rock the past few days you should be aware that MongoDB have agreed to purchase Realm.

Of course Realm and Mongo have published many nice words about each other and about how nothing might change, which is all good stuff. But as an indie developer who uses Realm I have grave concerns for the databases’ future, especially having been bitten big time by the Parse closure a few years ago. Fortunately I am not a user of the Realm Cloud (too many security concerns) so I am hopeful that I will be least affected as the future unrolls.

How do you feel?
Are you worried?
Do you use Realm?

There is an FAQ on the Realm forums if you want to read some more.
