  • Can I have my Lightroom catalogue pointing at two sources...?
    Yes. A Lightroom catalog file is, after all, just a SQLite database. (Srsly, make a copy of your catalog file, rename it whatever.sqlite and use your favorite SQLite GUI to rip it open and look at the tables and fields). It's just storing the pathame to the RAW file for that file's record in the database. Source: 2 days ago
  • Building a database to search Excel files
    I use visidata with a playback script I recorded to open the sheet to a specific Excel tab, add a column, save the sheet as a csv file. Then I have a sqlite script that takes the csv file and puts it in a database, partitioned by monthYear. Source: about 2 months ago

  • "Managing" a SQLite Database with J (Part 2)
    With this in mind, I wrote a few versions of this post, but I hated them all. Then I realized that jodliterate PDF documents mostly do what I want. So, instead of rewriting MirrorXref.pdf, I will make a few comments about jodliterate group documents in general. If you're interested in using SQLite with J, download the self-contained GitHub files MirrorXref.ijs and MirrorXref.pdf and have a look. - Source: / 10 months ago
  • "Managing" a SQLite Database with J (Part 1)
    SQLite, by many estimates, is the most widely deployed SQL database system on Earth. It's everywhere. It's in your phone, your laptop, your cameras, your car, your cloud, and your breakfast cereal. SQLite's global triumph is a gratifying testament to the virtues of technical excellence and the philosophy of "less is more.". - Source: / 10 months ago

    I started using Fossil for my new projects this year, mostly just to try something new, but it's really nice. It is simpler than git and comes with a built-in web-GUI for tracking issues and a built-in wiki and ways to publish files.

    This tutorial will guide us through building an interactive CLI app with Go, Cobra and promptui. We will learn how to prompt the user for input data and persist this data to an SQLite database. Unlike the previous app we built, this experience will feel more like a two way conversation. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Home SQL Server
    If the exact implementation of the SQL server doesn't matter, I might suggest postgresql or sqlite. Both are free, widely used and very solid. There are also gui tools like pgadmin4 . They both have plugin ecosystems if you want to experiment with NoSQL (storing JSON and other weird stuff for a relational db). Source: about 2 years ago

    SQLite is used everywhere and it's super simple for your use case, since there is no server to manage or user admin things to be concerned about. Https:// Source: about 2 years ago
