SQLite 3.8.6

A small, fast and reliable SQL database engine available for multiple platforms, including Mac OS X.
SQLite is a library that implements an embedded, zero configuration SQL database engine and does not have a separate server process.

Moreover, SQLite is able to read and write to ordinary disk files directly and provides a complete SQL database solution.

In addition, SQLite in able to put in a single disk file multiple tables, indices, triggers and views.

Main features:

  • Transactions are atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable (ACID) even after system crashes and power failures.
  • Zero-configuration - no setup or administration needed.
  • Implements most of SQL92. (Features not supported)
  • A complete database is stored in a single cross-platform disk file.
  • Supports terabyte-sized databases and gigabyte-sized strings and blobs. (See limits.html.)
  • Small code footprint: less than 350KiB fully configured or less than 200KiB with optional features omitted.
  • Faster than popular client/server database engines for most common operations.
  • Simple, easy to use API.
  • Written in ANSI-C. TCL bindings included. Bindings for dozens of other languages available separately.
  • Well-commented source code with 100% branch test coverage.
  • Available as a single ANSI-C source-code file that you can easily drop into another project.
  • Self-contained: no external dependencies.
  • Sources are in the public domain. Use for any purpose.
  • Comes with a standalone command-line interface (CLI) client that can be used to administer SQLite databases.
