Drivers

  • Right-click in Database Navigator > rclick > Create new connection > type [postgres] or [sqlite]
  • You will be prompted to set up the drivers, noice
  • Alternately, you can open a sqlite file, it will prompt to download sqlite driver
  • Good to go!

How to write queries

IT WILL PISS YOU OFF AT FIRST because of these stupid things:

  • After connecting to postgres: #db > right-click > Set active
  • Drill into #db > Schemas > public > Tables > #table > Read data in SQL console
  • THEN YOU CAN WRITE SQL, ffs
