Quickstart: Accessing an SQLite database from the command line

We'll firstly obtain the relevant packages:

sudo dnf install sqlite

or on Debian based distro's:

sudo apt-get install sqlite3

Then open the database with:

sqlite3 /path/to/database.sqlite

To view the tables we should issue:


and to review the rows within them:

select * from <table-name>;

and to describe the table schema issue:

.schema <table-name>

to insert issue:

insert into <table-name> values('testing',123);

and to delete issue:

delete from <table-name> where <column-name> = 1;
