When we think of database relationships, MySQL and PostgreSQL come to mind. However, other programs offer different solutions for the same requirement. So in this post, I will show you how to install SQLite on FreeBSD 12.

SQLite is a small, reliable and very fast database engine. It is one of the most efficient database engines in the world. In part, thanks to that made in C Language which makes it very efficient in managing the resources of the system.

In like manner, the development of SQLite is so important that many major companies participate in it. This is done through the SQLite Consortium. In addition, all the code is available to be downloaded, viewed and reused for being open source.

So, let us start.

Install SQLite on FreeBSD 12

First of all, the system must be upgraded, so to do this, execute the following command:

:~$ sudo pkg update

As you can see, I’m using sudo. If you don’t have sudo enabled, you can read our post:

How to enable sudo on FreeBSD 12?

SQLite is available in the FreeBSD 12 repositories. To make sure of this, we will search the repositories:

:~$ sudo pkg search sqlite

And we’ll get the next result:

1.- Search for the SQLite package
1.- Search for the SQLite package

As we can see in the image and in the screen output of the command, SQLite versions 2 and 3 are available. In this case, we will install version 3.

:~$ sudo pkg install sqlite3
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
FreeBSD repository is up to date.
All repositories are up to date.
The following 2 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

New packages to be INSTALLED:
sqlite3: 3.30.1
readline: 8.0.1

Number of packages to be installed: 2

The process will require 8 MiB more space.
2 MiB to be downloaded.

Proceed with this action? [y/N]:
2.- Install SQLite on FreeBSD 12
2.- Install SQLite on FreeBSD 12

Once the installation is finished, we proceed to show the version of the program.

:~$ sqlite3 --version
3.- SQLite version
3.- SQLite version

Now let’s use it a little.

Using SQLite

Now that it is installed, we can create a new database in the following way:

:~$ sqlite3 example.db

In this case, it’s called example.db but you can give it another name.

Inside it, we’ll be able to create a table with several fields.

For example:

CREATE TABLE Student
(
Go VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,
Name VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,
Last_Name VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,
Age INTEGER(2) NOT NULL,
CONSTRAINT pk_Student PRIMARY KEY (Id)
);
4.- Using SQLite on FreeBSD 12
4.- Using SQLite on FreeBSD 12

Of course, you can modify these values as you wish. Even add more.

Also, we’ll add some example data:

INSERT INTO Student (Id, Name, Last_Name, Age) VALUES ('Xy01','peter','bees',18);

And finally, we show them:

SELECT * FROM Student;
5.- SQLite on FreeBSD
5.- SQLite on FreeBSD

And that is it.

Remember that you can install SQLite Browse from the official repositories of almost all Linux distributions as well as on FreeBSD.

Conclusion

SQLite is a great database application and if we learn to use it, it would be a great help for our projects. Installing it is very easy and gives us a lot of work possibilities. In addition, the SQLite Browser makes the workflow too easy.
