SQLite is an RDBMS that is based on PostgreSQL syntax. It is not a client-server system and offers a variety of features to its users. It is faster than an SQL server and is serverless, portable, and self-contained. The only downside is that it provides only one writer at a time.
We can access SQLite databases with Python. Python provides support to work with such databases and manipulate them. The support for this is included in the standard Python library.
sqlite3 package provides different functionalities to work with the SQLite databases. As discussed, this is included by default in the standard library.
However, if one faces an issue with this, we can very easily install it using the
pip command. The
pip allows us to download and manage different packages in Python.
The following command is used to install the
pip install pysqlite3
For users working with Python 2.x, this may raise some errors. This is due to the Python version. We can alter the version by using the following command.
pip install pysqlite
If someone working with Anaconda Navigator has issues with the default package, they can use the
conda command to resolve this. This command is similar to the
pip command for managing packages in the Anaconda environment.
We use the following command.
conda install sqlite3
We can change the version depending on the user’s Python version.
