What is QuickLite?

QuickLite is a Cocoa wrapper for SQLite, a C library that implements an embeddable SQL database engine. It's easy and powerful, object-oriented, offers full cursor access, datatype support (QLString, QLNumber, QLBoolean, QLDateTime, and QLContainer), distributed notifications, data file compaction, data integrity check, debugging facilities, includes introspection methods to access table names, column names, indexes, etc. Also includes utility methods to create and drop tables, add and remove columns, insert data, and more! Access to SQLite's last error ID and associated error string. BLOB support. and more!

QuickLite already includes SQLite, so there's no need to download and to configure. It provides the developer with a SQL database without running a separate RDBMS process. QuickLite is not a client library used to connect to a big database server. QuickLite is the server, reading and writing directly to and from the database files on disk.
