Amalgalite 0.6.0 Released


#1

amalgalite version 0.6.0 has been released.

gem install amalgalite

http://copiousfreetime.rubyforge.org/amalgalite/

Amalgalite embeds the SQLite database engine in a ruby extension. There
is no
need to install SQLite separately.

Look in the examples/ directory to see

  • general usage
  • blob io
  • schema information
  • custom functions
  • custom aggregates
  • requiring ruby code from a database

Also Scroll through Amalgalite::Database for a quick example, and a
general
overview of the API.

I also wrote up a blog post on how to write SQL functions (both scalar
and
aggregate).

a while.
