Learn two different ways you can inspect the contents of your SQLite database. Annyce shows you how to use DB Browser and Android DbInspector in this video.
- [Narrator] Using the command line…to view your SQLite database…is fairly straightforward,…and it requires no additional instillation.…However, I find it less cumbersome to interact with a GUI…when inspecting a database.…Therefore, I prefer to use a browser.…The one I'm using currently is DB Browser for SQLite.…It's available on multiple platforms, and it's open-source.…To use it to inspect my database,…I need to do two simple steps.…
First, let's go back to the command line…so we can pull our database file onto our local machine.…In order to pull our database,…we're going to use the ADB pull command,…and specify the location of the database.…So we'll type adb pull,…and then we'll provide the full location to our database.…And that's forward slash data, forward slash data.…Then we put another forward slash,…but this time we put our package name:…info.adavis.topsy.turvey.…

To begin, Annyce Davis reviews using the de facto data persistence solution available on Android: SQLite. She takes you through basic SQLite concepts—such as how to create a database wrapper and insert data into a table—as well as a few more advanced topics. Next, she covers working with Cupboard, an open-source project dedicated to simplifying your SQLite interactions. To wrap up, she dives into working with Realm, an object database solution designed with mobile devices in mind. Throughout the course, Annyce discusses establishing relationships between database tables, creating and running queries, as well as performing data migrations.
