To configure your own databases, put a file named config.json in the working directory. If this file does not exist, the server will try to find the config-example.json and start with the test database for demonstration and/or testing purposes.

Have a look at the config-example.json file for configuration options.

Database support

For now, only sqlite3 is tested and supported. The basic functionality should work with all other databases supported by Go's database/sql. But the functionality to show all tables has to be implemented for each type separately.

Compiling and running from source

You'll need Go 1.4. Just for compiling older Go versions would do as well, but I use testing.M for test fixture setup which comes with Go 1.4.

To setup your Go environment have a look at and

databee needs Mattn's go-sqlite3:

    go get
    go run serve.go ./..

You will see something similar to this in the stdout:

$ go run serve.go ./...

Runing tests

    go test ./...


    go install

You will find the binary databee under $GOPATH/bin.
