Ubuntu – Accessing sqlite3 from Lua

I thought this would be trivial but ended up fighting with various solutions until I found one that worked without requiring additional configurations.

So first you might need to install the sqlite3 development libraries (which are needed to compile the Lua sqlite3 connector):

sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev

install luarocks if you don’t have it

sudo apt-get install luarocks

and finally, install lsqlite3:

sudo luarocks install lsqlite3
