I've been playing around with SQLite recently and I've stumbled across a few things I want to remember, so I'm putting them here.
The SQLite CLI is pretty darn good. Just remember to read in the SQLite DB file first, e.g.
.open /path/to/file. After that, any SQLite command is valid. Specific CLI commands are prefixed with a period.
Set the the
lineto visually grep the results.
To see the
rowidinclude it specifically in
SELECTstatements on the CLI, e.g.
SELECT rowid,* from table.
Delete an entry by
DELETE FROM table WHERE rowid=7;
When structuring a database, create a unique ID for each row like so:
create table foo (id INTEGER AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY UNIQUE NOT NULL, other_column TEXT).
That's all I got for now. I'll drop more tips in this post as I come across them.
