dart-sqlite: SQLite bindings for the Dart VM


Try the binary build which should work on Mac, 64-bit Linux, and Windows.

You can also build it yourself, see below.


var c = new sqlite.Database("/tmp/test.db");
try {
    // Simple queries and statements
    Row results = c.first("SELECT ?+2, UPPER(?)", [3, "Hello"]);
    var five = results[0];
    var shouting = results[1];

    // Iterating over a result set
    var count = c.execute("SELECT * FROM posts LIMIT 10", callback: (row) {
        print("${row.title}: ${row.body}");
    print("Showing ${count} posts.");

    // Reusing prepared statements
    var statement = c.prepare("INSERT INTO posts (title, body) VALUES (?,?)");
    try {
        statement.execute(["Hi", "Hello world"]);
        statement.execute(["Byte", "Goodbye cruel world"]);
    } finally {
} finally {


Yes! Here's the dartdoc.

Building (Linux/Mac)

You'll need:

  • Dart SDK
  • sqlite3-dev package
  • g++ toolchain.

Either edit to point to the SDK, or set the environment variable DART_SDK.

Building the library


Generating documentation

./ doc

Running tests

./ test

Building (Windows)

You'll need:

  • Dart SDK
  • dart.lib, the Dart native API library. You can obtain this by compiling Dart from source or grab this version (last updated: 2012-04-24)
  • The SQLite source code (the 'amalgamation')
  • Visual C++ 2008. The free version works fine.

Edit build.bat to point to the SDK and the SQLite sources.

Building the library

Edit build.bat to specify where you extracted the SQLite and Dart sources.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat
