Sequel Pro vs SQLite: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sequel Pro as "MySQL database management for Mac OS X". Sequel Pro is a fast, easy-to-use Mac database management application for working with MySQL databases. On the other hand, SQLite is detailed as "A software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine". SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.

Sequel Pro can be classified as a tool in the "Database Tools" category, while SQLite is grouped under "Databases".

"Free" is the primary reason why developers consider Sequel Pro over the competitors, whereas "Lightweight" was stated as the key factor in picking SQLite.

Sequel Pro is an open source tool with 6.73K GitHub stars and 591 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sequel Pro's open source repository on GitHub.

Typeform, Intuit, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use SQLite, whereas Sequel Pro is used by Movielala, Algorithmia, and Punchh. SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 314 company stacks & 477 developers stacks; compared to Sequel Pro, which is listed in 46 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.

    SQLite is a tricky beast. It's great if you're working single-threaded, but a Terrible Idea if you've got more than one concurrent connection. You use it because it's easy to setup, light, and portable (it's just a file).

    In Paperless, we've built a self-hosted web application, so it makes sense to standardise on something small & light, and as we don't have to worry about multiple connections (it's just you using the app), it's a perfect fit.

    For users wanting to scale Paperless up to a multi-user environment though, we do provide the hooks to switch to PostgreSQL .

    We build queries in PHP with DSQL that work with SQLite. We also have SQLite data controller, so that you can build SQLite-based models.

    Used during the "build process" of Coolfront Mobile's Flat rate search engine database. Flat rate data that resides in Salesforce is transformed using SQLite into a format that is usable for our mobile Flat rate search engine (AKA: Charlie).

    RDBTools is a self-hosted application, and it is important that the installation process is simple. With SQLite, we create a new database file for every analysis. Once the analysis is done, the SQLite file can be thrown away easily.

    All the dynamic data (i.e.: jobs) is stored in a simple SQLite database.

    There's really no call for something heavier for this site. SQLite is simple, easy to use and quite reliable given its age.
