What is This?

TkSQLite is a GUI database manager for SQLite implemented by Tcl/Tk. It can manage SQLite version2.8 and SQLite version3.x database. And it can handle many encodings like Shift-JIS, EUC-JP and Windows native milti-byte encodings not only UTF-8. And it can run on Windows and Linux and MacOSX as native Look & Feel. And it's Freeware.


  • Support SQLite2.8 and SQLite3.x db.
  • Support many encodings not only utf-8.
  • Edit table with grid table.
  • Change table schema.
  • Show images in BLOB data.(Sqlite3)
  • Syntax keyword hilighting.
  • Native Look & Feel.
  • Japanese and English locale.
  • Many functions (md5, sha1, des, etc. see SQLite user function)
  • Run on any platform Tcl/Tk can.
  • Attach and Detach Database.
  • Export and Import CSV.
  • Dump a database to SQL.
  • Support loadable extension.


Tablelist4.5+ is still required by tksqlite 0.4. But tksqlite 0.5 requires Treectrl2.1+ instead of Tablelist.

ActiveTcl has all of these precompiled extensions. I really recommend to install it if you are not familiar with tcl/tk environment.


remove tksqlite.tcl and, rm ~/.tksqlite on linux or %APPDATA%/tksqlite/.tksqlite on windows


New BSD style license.


ver0.5 English version on Vista

TkSQLite version 0.5 on Vista

ver0.4 Japanese version on Linux

TkSQLite version 0.4 on FedoraCore1

    • The embedded quote characters must be represented by a pair of quote characters.
  • Export CSV Dialog
    export to csv test dialog


TkSQLite have many user functions emulated some other DB's functions. See SQLite user function.

  • Some example
    • perl5 like regexp. (this is Tcl regexp command. see also Syntax of Tcl regular expressions.)
      select * from  t where name regexp "^J.*"
    • regsub(pattern, colname, str). You can use submach pattern like \1 too.
      insert into t 
      select regsub("syo", name, "sho") from t2

      select regsub("(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2}).*", "20050401", "\1-\2-\3")
  • MD5(requires Tcllib).
    select md5(name) from t
  • read_file
    insert into t values(NULL, 'image test', read_file('c:/tmp/001.gif', 1));

Loading tcl script functions.

tksqlite 0.5 can load tcl script functions. The interface is tclsqlite. You can access the db command. It is just a sqlite database command. But don't use another sub commands except for db function, because the command is used by tksqlite. Don't rename and free the command too.

The loading process is

  1. db is opened.
  2. default sqlite functions is installed.
  3. registerd tcl scripts are sourced.


proc plusProc {a b} {
    if {[string is double $a] && [string is double $b]} {
        return [expr {$a + $b}]
    return [append a $b]
db function plus plusProc

Register this script in Preference Dialog, and check Enable. Then open a database file and You can use the plus func.

select plus(1,1)

returns 2

select plus(1, 'abc')

returns '1abc'

    • I noticed that the ubuntu7.10's new security layer may break upx compressed app... I'm looking for a solution now. -- reddog 2007-12-22 02:19:59

  • i think that virtual tables are wrong handled, eg.: create virtual table test using fts3(col1, col2); try insert on that table, it is working but tksqlite show error. and additional fts3 tables should be as subnodes in mention befor 'test' table -- tataremka 2008-02-06 15:08:20
    • What versions of sqlite and tksqlite and fts3 are you using? I noticed that the last fts3 could not load into a db on windows. -- reddog 2008-02-06 22:04:06
  • i'm using the latest one version of tksqlite. i'm suggesting only that you should somehow handle tables depended on virtual one, i mean these created automatically (with sufixes like: _content, _segdir and _segments) by sqlite engine, i think they should be as a subnodes of virtual table (because 'drop table' removes, together with virtual table, those depended tables automatically too. Create virtual table, as i mention prev post, and do some inserts, then you'll see that inserts are executed ok but tksqlite raises some error anyway. -- tataremka 2008-02-07 14:55:29
  • when im adding in grid a new row then error is: "Invalid SQL query: not an error INSERT INTO 'main'.'poem' ("name","text") VALUES ('aaa','aaa');" .

    • I confirmed the insert problem now. I'm goin to debug. thank you. And about the second suggestion, these tables are got from sqlite_master, and AFAIK there are no way to know these parent-children relationship. So it seems to me that it is difficult. -- reddog 2008-02-08 00:34:35

    • I know the problem. I'm thinking how express the data type in GUI. If you know SQL, try "Dump SQL" button or "show only" checkbox. These show a sql that tksqlite will do. You can edit it, and then execute it. -- reddog 2008-02-17 23:43:32

  • In ver 0.5.11 SHIFT-CONTROL-DOWN to mark text downwards in fact goes UP. I can diminish the editor text, but is there a way to get the table data smaller? I miss a single button to get back to standardized grid measures when "distorted". When working with multiple tkSQLite instances I could fancy several different colour schemes for easier distinction like white canvas with grey frames versus white with pink frames or white with light green frames. Apart from that it is a suberb program that I prefer against all others. -- jwh 2014-05-10 (Sat) 23:57:15

  • Awesome! Thank you for doing that reddog. May I offer some ideas for a future version if you think any of them might be useful? 1. add Run SQL (current line) and RunSQL (current statement) to SQL Command context menu. 2. option to show table record count (in brackets) next to table name. 3. allow delete key in command history window. 4. add confirm dialog to Delete All option in command history context menu. 5. use ctrl-double click &/or context menu item to run command history item directly. 7. include formatting (colour) information when doing a clipboard copy in SQL Command window 8. Allow data editor updates in query results -- abraham 2014-05-26 (Mon) 16:52:18

  • My dearst thanks to you: within only a few weeks you solved the mis-direction problem with SHIFT-CONTROL-DOWN. I see there are many good ideas for future improvements. Please allow me one more suggestion including its motivation. If you have a master database, a temporary database plus an attached database, then you see three branches: main, temp and e. g. addi. If you now create 'main.weg' and 'temp.weg' and 'addi.weg', you will see all three of them. If you now 'drop table weg', however, you will see them vanish. First 'temp.weg' disappears, then 'main.weg' and lastly 'add.weg'. Probably the same order applies for any 'select * from weg'. Therefore my suggestion is: the hierarchy in the database tree should reflect this sequence, showing the temp-branch first (upmost), the main-branch second, and then the attached databases like addi, thus improving the comprehension of the effects of sqlite statements. -- jwh 2014-06-03 (Tue) 05:42:43
