SqliteMagic

Simple yet powerful SQLite database layer for Android that makes database handling feel like magic.

Overview:

  • Simple, intuitive & typesafe API
  • Minimal setup needed
  • Built in RxJava support with reactive stream semantics on queries and operations
  • Built in AutoValue immutable objects support
  • Built in kotlin support
  • Full support for complex columns
  • Support for SQLite views
  • Persist any third party object with fully customizable object transformers
  • Support for migrations
  • No reflection
  • Compile time annotation processing
  • Probably the fastest library for Android SQLite database operations (without memory caching)

Getting Started

Install IntelliJ Plugin (for non-kotlin project):

The Intellij plugin can be installed from Android Studio by navigating Android Studio -> Preferences -> Plugins -> Browse repositories -> Search for SqliteMagic

Add SqliteMagic to Project:

buildscript {
  repositories {
    jcenter()
  }
  dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:<latest version>'
    classpath 'com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic:sqlitemagic-plugin:0.24.2'
  }
}

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic'

Initialize Library:

SqliteMagic.builder(applicationContext)
    .sqliteFactory(new FrameworkSQLiteOpenHelperFactory())
    .openDefaultConnection();

Note: any place with a reference to Application context is ok to use for initialization, but it must happen before a database is accessed. During initialization default db connection is opened, db schema is created and migration scripts are executed - no other hidden runtime performance costs.

Define Database:

Note that there is no need to extend or implement any base classes or interfaces

POJO AutoValue

@Table(persistAll = true)
public class Author {

  @Id(autoIncrement = false)
  long id;
  
  String firstName;
  
  String lastName;
  
  ...
}



@Table(persistAll = true)
public class Book {

  @Id(autoIncrement = false)
  long id();
  
  String title;
  
  Author author;
  
  ...
}

@Table(persistAll = true)
@AutoValue
public abstract class Author {

  @Id(autoIncrement = false)
  public abstract long id();
  
  public abstract String firstName();
  
  public abstract String lastName();
  
  ...
}

@Table(persistAll = true)
@AutoValue
public abstract class Book {

  @Id(autoIncrement = false)
  public abstract long id();
  
  public abstract String title();
  
  public abstract Author author();
  
  ...
}
Kotlin
@Table(persistAll = true, useAccessMethods = true)
data class Author(
  @Id(autoIncrement = false) val id: Long,
  val firstName: String,
  val lastName: String
)



@Table(persistAll = true, useAccessMethods = true)
data class Book(
  @Id(autoIncrement = false) val id: Long,
  val title: String,
  val author: Author
)

Database operation builder methods for Java are "automagically" generated during compile time on objects with @Table annotation using bytecode manipulation and AST transformations. These methods may seem like "magic", but actually they are only glue methods that call corresponding table generated class methods. This way one can still see human readable code during debugging - just press "step into" when magic method is encountered.

For kotlin, database operation builder methods are generated as extensions functions.

Do Operations With Objects:

Synchronous RxJava
Author author = new Author(73, "Foo", "Bar");
Book book = new Book(77, "Bar", author);

// insert -- NOTE: author object also gets
// inserted and the whole operation
// is wrapped in transaction
long id = book
    .insert()
    .execute();

// update
boolean success = author
    .update()
    .execute();

// update or insert
id = author
    .persist()
    .execute();
    
// update or insert but ignore null values
id = author
    .persist()
    .ignoreNullValues()
    .execute();
    
// delete
int nrOfDeletedRows = author
    .delete()
    .execute();
    
// Bulk operations are also supported
success = Author
    .persist(someAuthors)
    .ignoreNullValues()
    .execute();
Author author = new Author(73, "Foo", "Bar");
Book book = new Book(77, "Bar", author);

// insert -- NOTE: author object also gets
// inserted and the whole operation is
// wrapped in transaction when result
// object gets subscribed
Single<Long> insert = book
    .insert()
    .observe();

// update
Completable update = author
    .update()
    .observe();

// update or insert
Single<Long> persist = author
    .persist()
    .observe();
    
// update or insert but ignore null values
persist = author
    .persist()
    .ignoreNullValues()
    .observe();
    
// delete
Single<Integer> delete = author
    .delete()
    .observe();
    
// Bulk operations are also supported
Completable bulkPersist = Author
    .persist(someAuthors)
    .ignoreNullValues()
    .observe();

(All database operations trigger RxJava notifications on active queries that listen to table that is being modified)

Use Typesafe Operation Builders:

Synchronous RxJava
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .BookTable.BOOK;
...

int nrOfUpdatedRows = Update
    .table(BOOK)
    .set(BOOK.TITLE, "Foo")
    .where(BOOK.ID.is(77L))
    .execute();

int nrOfDeletedRows = Delete
    .from(BOOK)
    .where(BOOK.ID.isNot(77L)
        .and(BOOK.TITLE.is("Foo")))
    .execute();
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .BookTable.BOOK;
...

Single<Integer> update = Update
    .table(BOOK)
    .set(BOOK.TITLE, "Foo")
    .where(BOOK.ID.is(77L))
    .observe();

Single<Integer> delete = Delete
    .from(BOOK)
    .where(BOOK.ID.isNot(77L)
        .and(BOOK.TITLE.is("Foo")))
    .observe();

Query Data:

SqliteMagic ships with its own DSL (or Domain Specific Language) that emulates SQL in Java (inspired by JOOQ).

Synchronous RxJava
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .AuthorTable.AUTHOR;
...

List<Author> authors = Select
    .from(AUTHOR)
    .where(AUTHOR.FIRST_NAME.like("Foo%")
        .and(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.isNot("Bar")))
    .orderBy(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.desc())
    .limit(10)
    .execute();

import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .AuthorTable.AUTHOR;
...

// QueryObservable is an rx.Observable of Query
// which offers query-specific convenience
// operators.
QueryObservable<List<Author>> observable = Select
    .from(AUTHOR)
    .where(AUTHOR.FIRST_NAME.like("Foo%")
        .and(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.isNot("Bar")))
    .orderBy(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.desc())
    .limit(10)
    .observe();

Query Complex Data:

Synchronous RxJava
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .AuthorTable.AUTHOR;
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .BookTable.BOOK;
...

// the resulting Book objects also contain
// Author objects
List<Book> books = Select
    .from(BOOK)
    .where(BOOK.TITLE.is("Bar")
        .and(AUTHOR.is(someAuthorObject)))
    .orderBy(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.asc())
    .limit(10)
    // this tells to query all complex data
    // which is queried in a single
    // SELECT statement
    .queryDeep()
    .execute();
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .AuthorTable.AUTHOR;
import static com.siimkinks.sqlitemagic
    .BookTable.BOOK;
...

// the resulting Book objects also contain
// Author objects
QueryObservable<List<Book>> observable = Select
    .from(BOOK)
    .where(BOOK.TITLE.is("Bar")
        .and(AUTHOR.is(someAuthorObject)))
    .orderBy(AUTHOR.LAST_NAME.asc())
    .limit(10)
    // this tells to query all complex data
    // which is queried in a single
    // SELECT statement
    .queryDeep()
    .observe();

There is so much more to querying data like SQL functions, views, more type safety, selecting columns, querying only the first result, counting, RxJava convenience operators, etc. Take a deeper look at the wiki.
