Querying SQLite with DataStation
Database initialization [Optional]
If you want to follow along with this tutorial verbatim, in your terminal create a SQLite database and enter this sample data:
$ sqlite3 ~/test.sqlite SQLite version 3.36.0 2021-06-18 18:58:49 Enter ".help" for usage hints. sqlite> create table test(name text, age int); sqlite> insert into test values ('Kara', 24), ('Mike', 30);
Data source setup
Now inside DataStation, create a new data source in the left sidebar.
Give it a nice name so you easily can find it later. And select SQLite in the Vendor dropdown.
In the database field, specify the file
Next set your database, username, and password.
Remote connection [Optional]
If you want connect to a SQLite database on a remote server, you will need to set up the SSH connection to that server first. Once you do, you can select that connection in the "Via Server" dropdown.
Now create a new panel and select the Database type.
Run a query
Enter your query and hit play!
Note: Ctrl-r is a shortcut for hitting the play button when you are focused on one panel.
You can always download the results of a panel by hitting the download button. Or you can reference the results in other panels.
Graph the results
There is a graph button below the query panel, beside the New Panel button. Click it to generate a graph panel pointed at the query panel.
