Knex is a SQL query builder for Node.js that allows you to interact with databases using JavaScript. It supports multiple database systems such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and others, providing a unified interface for database operations. Knex simplifies the process of building complex SQL queries by offering a fluent and flexible API, making it easier to work with databases in Node.js applications.

Compared to raw SQL queries or ORM libraries, Knex strikes a balance between simplicity and power, offering a middle ground for developers who want more control over their queries without sacrificing readability. It is actively maintained with regular updates and a strong community support.
