Working demo SQLite with C++ on Mac OSX Xcode

Working demo SQLite with C++ on Mac OSX Xcode

This was developed for Mac OSX which seems the preferred database.

Problems with the alternatives databases:

Open source Maria DB does not work at all which appears to be a mess

MYSQL is unstable and incomplete thanks to Oracle butchering it

Postgres development libraries seem complex for Xcode or just does not link up for some reason

SQLite seems to be the only one that work. For my new version 2 system, this should be fine for very simplistics needs as long as I don’t need it for Clustering on multiple systems

Instructions here:

Install SQLite3 with: brew install sqlite3

This could already be installed by default in your  Mac OSX

You could use this to Download SQLiteBrowser from

I installed using

brew cask install sqlitebrowser

I installed Valentina Studio through Apple OS X App store which is free

Could make a sample C++ client for SQLite



#include <stdio.h>

#include <sqlite3.h>

int main(int argc, char* argv[])


    sqlite3 *db;

    char *zErrMsg = 0;

    int rc;

    rc = sqlite3_open(“test.db”, &db);

    if( rc ){

        fprintf(stderr, “Can’t open database: %s\n”, sqlite3_errmsg(db));

        return -1;


        fprintf(stderr, “Opened database successfully\n”);
