Managing and administering data can be a complex task if you do not have the necessary tools to work on this data, which can be of various types, there are numerous platforms for data management and one of the most striking and well-known is SQLite..

 

SQLite has been created as a C language library which implements a stand-alone but highly reliable SQL database engine integrating the functions necessary for full data management.
SQLite is based on an integrated SQL database engine and what makes it different from other SQL databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL or SQL Server, is that SQLite does not have a separate server process, this allows it to read and write directly to disk files.

 

 

 

The SQLite database file format is available for various architectures and systems as it allows you to copy a database between 32-bit and 64-bit systems or between big-endian and little-endian architectures..

 

Features
Among the main features of SQLite we find:

 

  • It supports ACID transactions (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) which guarantees that all database operations can be consistent and reliable.
  • It does not require a complicated configuration.
  • SQLite has a small memory footprint and low resource consumption.
  • It is compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, etc. platforms.
  • SQLite makes use of SQL (Structured Query Language) to manipulate and query the data stored in the database that is created.
  • It has variable length records.
  • SQL statements are compiled into virtual machine code.
  • An SQLite database handles the form of a single ordinary disk file which makes it easy to locate anywhere in the system's directory hierarchy.

 

 

Now TechnoWikis will teach you how to install SQLite and for this case we will use Fedora 38.

 

How to install SQLite

 

Step 1

To start we are going to open the terminal and there execute the following command to update the system cache:
 sudo dnf makecache 
Step 2

We enter the password to start the process:

Step 3

At the end we will see the following:

 

image

 

Step 4

Now we are going to install SQLite with the command:
 sudo dnf install sqlite 

image

 

step 5

We enter the letter "s" to confirm the download and installation of SQLite in the system, during the process we will see the following:

 

image

 

step 6

There we must accept the installation of the GPG key with the letter "s", we wait for the process to finish:

 

image

 

step 7

Now we install some additional packages with the following command:
 sudo dnf install sqlite-devel sqlite-tcl 

image

 

step 8

We confirm the download and installation. The "sqlite-devel" command is a package of SQLite development files and tools in which we find the header files, shared libraries, and more resources for compiling and linking applications that use SQLite. .

step 9

On the other hand “sqlite-tcl” allows us to interact with the SQLite library using scripts written in Tcl, it gives us the opportunity to access and manipulate these databases.
 sqlite-tcl 
step 10

It is possible to check the path where SQLite is installed with the command:
 which sqlite3 

image

 

step 11

Now, if you do not want to use this installation method TechnoWikis will explain how to install SQL using extra methods, we can use the binaries, for this in the terminal we first execute the following to download the binaries:
 wget https://www.sqlite.org/2023/sqlite-tools-linux-x86-3420000.zip 

image

 

step 12

After this we extract the content by defining the location:
 unzip sqlite-tools-linux-x86-3420000.zip -d /tmp/sqlite-bin 

image

 

step 13

Now let's add the variable:
 export PATH=/tmp/sqlite-bin:$PATH 

image

 

step 14

Another method is to use the SQLite sources, for this we first download the necessary utilities:
 sudo dnf groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries" 

image

 

step 15

We will see the following:

 

image

 

step 16

We confirm the process with the letter "y" and wait for it to finish:

 

image

step 17

At the end we will see the following:

 

 

image

 

step 18

Now we download the SQLite code:
 wget https://www.sqlite.org/2023/sqlite-autoconf-3420000.tar.gz 

image

 

step 19

We extract this file:
 tar -xvf sqlite-autoconf-3420000.tar.gz 

image

 

step 20

Now we run the configuration script:
 sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr 

image

 

step 21

At the end we will see this:

 

image

 

step 22

We compile the resource:
 make -j$(nproc) 

image

 

Step 23

When this process is finished we will see this:

 

image

 

step 24

We carry out the installation:
 sudo make install 

image

 

step 25

We hope it reaches its end:

 

image

 

step 26

In all cases we can check the version of SQLite by running:
 sqlite3 --version 

image

 

step 27

Now create a database using the following syntax:
 sqlite3 <db_name>.db 

image

 

Step 28

We create our table by running:
 CREATE TABLE “base” (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, name TEXT); 

image

 

Step 29

We will see two columns that are "id" and "name", in the "id" column the integer values ​​are stored and works as the primary key and the "name" column stores the strings to use. We can insert data into the table using the syntax:
 INSERT INTO (base) (id, name) VALUES (#, 'information'); 

image

 

step 30

We will see the result by executing:
 SELECT * FROM (base); 

image

 

step 31

We list the current tables of the database: To exit the SQLite console we execute “.exit”.
 .tables 

image

 

step 32

Now TechnoWikis will teach you how to graphically manage the SQLite database, for this in the terminal execute:
 sudo dnf install snapd 

image

 

Step 33

We confirm the process and wait for it to finish:

 

image

 

Step 34

We enable the snap by creating a symbolic link:
 sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap 

image

 

step 35

We install the plugin:
 sudo snap install sqlitebrowser 

image

 

Step 36

We run “sqlitebrowser” to open the GUI environment:

 

image

 

Step 37

From there it is possible to manage the SQLite databases:

 

image

 

Thus it is possible to install and use SQLite on Fedora and fully manage the databases..
