neilotoole/sqlitr

sqlitr is a trivial query tool for SQLite written in Go. It was created as a example project for neilotoole/xcgo, which is a Go/Golang cross-compiling docker builder image. sqlitr invokes the SQLite C library via CGo: building and distributing binaries for multiple platforms with CGo is a challenge. The neilotoole/xcgo image makes life easier for the common cases.

Usage

From sqlitr --help:

sqlitr is a trivial query tool for SQLite.

Usage: sqlitr [FLAGS] path/to/db.sqlite query [QUERY_ARGS]

Examples:
  sqlitr --help
  sqlitr --version

  # simple select, will print header row
  sqlitr ./testdata/example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'

  # same as above, but don't print header row
  sqlitr --no-header ./testdata/example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'

  # same query, but the SQLite db is first downloaded from
  # the URL to a temp file, then the query is executed.
  sqlitr https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/raw/master/testdata/example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'

  # execute a SQL stmt (note the --exec flag, as opposed to default query behavior)
  sqlitr --exec ./testdata/example.sqlite "INSERT INTO actor (actor_id, first_name, last_name) VALUES(11, 'Kubla', 'Khan')"

  # execute a SQL stmt, but supply query args via the command line
  sqlitr --exec ./testdata/example.sqlite 'DELETE FROM actor WHERE actor_id = ?' 3

  # create a new DB file
  sqlitr --create path/to/db.sqlite


Note that if the SQL is a SELECT or similar query, output is
in TSV (tab-separated) format. To execute a non-query SQL statement
such as INSERT, supply the --exec flag: in that case the count of
rows affected (and the last insert ID if applicable) are printed.

sqlitr exists as a demonstration project for neilotoole/xcgo which
is a Go/CGo cross-compiling docker builder image. sqlitr makes use of
the https://github.com/mattn/sqlite3 package which uses CGo to
incorporate SQLite.

sqlitr was created by Neil O'Toole <neilotoole@apache.org> and is
released under the MIT License. See https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr

Usage example, with a remote DB file:

$ sqlitr https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/raw/master/testdata/example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'
actor_id	first_name	last_name
1	PENELOPE	GUINESS
2	NICK	WAHLBERG
3	ED	CHASE
4	JENNIFER	DAVIS
5	JOHNNY	LOLLOBRIGIDA
6	BETTE	NICHOLSON
7	GRACE	MOSTEL
8	MATTHEW	JOHANSSON
9	JOE	SWANK
10	CHRISTIAN	GABLE

Installation

This section is the raison d'être of sqlitr. After any of these methods, run sqlitr --version to verify your install.

go get

The usual Go method will work (although without --version info):

go get -u github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr

go install

Or, if you want to install from source (again without --version info):

$ git clone https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr.git && cd sqlitr
$ go install

brew

Install on macOS or Linux via brew (formula)

$ brew tap neilotoole/sqlitr
$ brew install sqlitr

scoop

Install on Windows via scoop (manifest)

$ scoop bucket add sqlitr https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr
$ scoop install sqlitr

snap

Install on Linux via snap.

$ snap install sqlitr 

deb

The deb package is not currently published to a repository, so we'll need to directly reference the packages as published in releases.

Download the .deb file (replace v0.1.21 below with the appropriate version) and then install.

$ curl -fsSLO https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/releases/download/v0.1.21/sqlitr_0.1.21_linux_amd64.deb
$ sudo apt install -y ./sqlitr_0.1.21_linux_amd64.deb
$ rm ./sqlitr_0.1.21_linux_amd64.deb

rpm

As per deb, the rpm is not published to a repository, so directly reference the package as published in releases.

Via yum:

$ yum localinstall -y https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/releases/download/v0.1.21/sqlitr_0.1.21_linux_amd64.rpm

Via rpm:

$ sudo rpm -i https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/releases/download/v0.1.21/sqlitr_0.1.21_linux_amd64.rpm

tarball

Download the appropriate .tar.gz or .zip file from GitHub releases, and extract the binary from the archive.

docker

You can also run sqlitr directly from the published docker image:

$ docker run neilotoole/sqlitr:latest /example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'

^ Note that /example.sqlite is included in the image. You could also use a URL:

$ docker run neilotoole/sqlitr:latest https://github.com/neilotoole/sqlitr/raw/master/testdata/example.sqlite 'SELECT * FROM actor'

Acknowledgements

  • sqlitr was created to demonstrate neilotoole/xcgo: see that README for upstream acknowledgements.
  • testdata/example.sqlite database is a tiny stripped-down version of the Sakila database.
  • sqlitr employs mattn/go-sqlite3 to demonstrate CGo usage.
  • And of course, SQLite itself.
