Use SQLite on client in for Off-line Wifix

Registered by nUboon2Age on 2010-08-18

Why use?

Readily available: "SQLite comes bundled with the Python programming language since Python 2.5. "

Features of SQLite: http://www.sqlite.org/different.html
SQLite does not need to be "installed" before it is used. There is no "setup" procedure. There is no server process that needs to be started, stopped, or configured. There is no need for an administrator to create a new database instance or assign access permissions to users. SQLite uses no configuration files. Nothing needs to be done to tell the system that SQLite is running. No actions are required to recover after a system crash or power failure. There is nothing to troubleshoot... SQLite just works. "

"When optimized for size, the whole SQLite library with everything enabled is less than 275KiB in size"

"The use of manifest typing in SQLite is a deliberate design decision which has proven in practice to make SQLite more reliable and easier to use, especially when used in combination with dynamically typed programming languages such as Tcl and Python. "
http://www.sqlite.org/about.html: "SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file. The database file format is cross-platform "
