A small, fast and reliable library designed to provide easy access to an SQL database engine on multiple platforms, including macOS
SQLite is a cross platform in-process library that can be used to effortlessly deploy an SQL database engine, and which allows you to quickly open and edit database files. Even with all features enabled the library has a small size, and can be easily embedded into your own projects.
Of course, the SQLite engine works better if there is more memory available, but it also registers satisfactory results in resources limited environments. As a result, SQLite represents a viable solution for smaller devices, such as smartphones or other gadgets.
Small but powerful database engine that can be used in a wide array of projects
Since the SQLite files can be used cross platform, it can successfully replace some proprietary formats used by your applications. This way, you can update your utilities on all platforms a lot easier.
In addition, you can use the SQLite engine to create databases for mobile devices or other smaller gadgets, for websites (no configuration is required), or for enterprise RDBMS designed for testing or demonstrations.
The SQLite engine requires no configuration, is self contained, allows you to store an entire database in a disk file that is accessible cross platform, can deal with large databases, and features a user friendly API.
Versatile SQL engine packed with useful capabilities
Noteworthy is that SQLite deals with transactions in a durable, atomic mode, which means that the data is not affected by system crashes. What’s more, it implements most of the SQL92 standards, and has a very small size.
To conclude, if you are looking for a powerful SQL engine library that can be integrated into your projects without leaving a large footprint, the SQLite project certainly deserves your attention. For your convenience, the SQLite databases can be managed via a command line application that comes as a standalone tool.
