Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. What is SQLite Reader?

    SQLite Reader is a browser add-on that help you easily open and view any SQLite database. Moreover, you can execute any command that you would like. It uses SQLite library (SQLite) which is compiled from C and C++ language to JavaScript with Emscripten compiler. Emscripten is a source-to-source compiler that can compile native C/C++ codes to JavaScript language. In order to work with this add-on, just open the app UI and drag a SQLite file to the designated area in the app (top section). Once the SQLite is fully loaded, you will see the commands in the textarea (middle section) within the UI. Simply edit the code and then click on the - Execute SQLite - button at the top left corner (the green button). Please note that, executing any command may take some time depending on the SQLite database size. The result is rendered in the - result section (III) - within the app UI. You can save the database by pressing on the - Save Database - button at the top. Moreover, there is also a button to insert a sample SQLite code. Simply press on this button and then click on the - Execute SQLite - button to see the results.

  • 2. What is SQLite?

    SQLite is a database management system embedded in C programming language. It is mainly designed for managing data (large database). Within the browser, and without any additional plugins, there is no way to view or manage SQLite database. This addon helps you easily render and manage any SQLite database. Since this app is a browser addon, it is working in all browsers and platforms. Moreover, the UI is very user friendly and easy-to-use. Please note that, SQL and SQLite have many differences but SQLite has most of the SQL standard.

  • 3. How can I work with this add-on?

    As mentioned above, simply open the app UI, then drag & drop a desired SQLite database inside the app (rectangular area at the top). Wait for the app to fully load your SQLite database. A loader will show up until the loading process is done. Once you see the result in the textarea (middle section), you can start editing the code. Then press on the execute SQLite button at the top left corner. Your code will be executed and the result will be shown at the bottom section. Please note that, since this addon is using the JavaScript version of SQLite package, it might be slower than the native application. There are few buttons at the top section within the toolbar. From left to right, there is - Execute SQLite - button which is for executing SQLite commands. Next there is the - Reload UI - button to reload the app UI. Third button is for cleaning the app UI (result section). If you want to save the database, please use the forth button. Clicking on this button will save and download the database to your system in the default download location. Next button is for inserting a sample SQLite code. If you are not familiar with SQLite language, you can use this button to start working with this addon. Please remember to press on the - Execute SQLite - button after inserting the sample code. The last button is for opening the support page.

  • 4. How does SQLite Reader addon work?

    This addon uses the free and open source conversion library called SQLite. SQLite is originally written in C language. But within the browser, only JavaScript language is accepted. Therefore, this addon uses a compiled version of SQLite library in Javascript language. The compiled version is the result of Emscripten compiler. Please read this Wikipedia page to get more info about Emscripten compiler. All the original SQLite commands are also accepted in this Javascript compiled version. However, not every command is supported yet. So please check for available commands before using the addon. It is also important to note that, because this library is based on Javascript, it may NOT have the same performance as the C language version. Since it runs in the browser and has less resources comparing to the native SQLite application. But, according to our tests it is useful for ordinary usage (normal database).

  • 5. How do I turn the extension OFF?

    When app UI is closed, this addon is completely OFF and has no usage (RAM/CPU) on your system at all. Alternatively, if you want to completely turn off the addon, please head to the extensions tab in your browser and then click on the disable button from there.

  • 6. Is this extension available for mobile firefox (Firefox for android)?

    Yes, this addon is available for all browsers and platforms including mobile Firefox and Opera browsers.

  • 7. How can I reload the app UI?

    When you open the app UI, you will see a reload button on the top left corner (second button). Please press on this button to reload the UI. Also note that, reloading the UI will terminate all active operations and reset the execution process.

  • 8. How can I download the SQLite database?

    Once a execution is done, please press on the - Save Database. Please click on the link to download the item to your machine. Download location is the default download path in your browser.

  • 9. How can I change the download path for SQLite database?

    In order to change the download location, please head to the settings tab in your browser and then find the download section. Within this section, you can adjust the download path. This will globally change the download location for all you downloads in your browser.

  • 10. Does this addon has comparable performance to the native SQLite applications?

    No, since this addon runs SQLite commands within the browser, it runs slower than the native SQLite application/library. However, using the addon is very easy (in fact much easier than the native SQLite command-line tool). Simply add it to your browser and it starts to work without any additional plugins. The native SQLite library is rather hard to use and may be difficult to install on different operating systems. But this addon is supported on all major browsers and platforms. Please note that, for very large SQLite database, you still need the native SQLite application. This addon is only suitable for normal database size.
