  • Run any sql query on the given database to update and delete your data.
  • Directly edit the database values.
  • Search in your data.
  • Sort data.

Using Android Debug Database Library in your application

Add this to your app's build.gradle

debugCompile 'com.amitshekhar.android:debug-db:0.4.0'

Use debugCompile so that it will only compile in your debug build and not in your release apk.

That’s all, just start the application, you will see in the logcat an entry like follows :

  • D/DebugDB: Open http://XXX.XXX.X.XXX:8080 in your browser

  • You can also always get the debug address url from your code by calling the method DebugDB.getAddressLog();

Now open the provided link in your browser.

Important : Your Android phone and laptop should be connected to the same Network (Wifi or LAN).

Note : If you want use different port other than 8080. In the app build.gradle file under buildTypes do the following change

debug {
    resValue("string", "PORT_NUMBER", "8081")

You will see something like this :
