Key Features of SQLite


Public domain

The SQLite source code is in the public domain and doesn't require a license for use.


SQLite provides APIs for extending the the database system, including new functionality.


There is no server process to manage access so processes can write directly to a SQLite database.


Transactions are ACID-compliant so all changes are applied or not at all, increasing reliability.


SQLite doesn't require installation or configuration before use and can be used almost everywhere.


The official SQLite library is less than a single megabyte.

Get mentored the SQLite way

Every language has its own way of doing things. SQLite is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a SQLite developer and how to write idiomatic code in SQLite. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in SQLite - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
