The androidx.sqlite library contains abstract interfaces along with basic implementations which can be used to build your own libraries that access SQLite.

You might want to consider using the Room library, which provides an abstraction layer over SQLite to allow for more robust database access while harnessing the full power of SQLite.

    // Java language implementation
    implementation "androidx.sqlite:sqlite:$sqlite_version"

    // Kotlin
    implementation "androidx.sqlite:sqlite-ktx:$sqlite_version"

    // Implementation of the AndroidX SQLite interfaces via the Android framework APIs.
    implementation "androidx.sqlite:sqlite-framework:$sqlite_version"


dependencies {
    val sqlite_version = "2.1.0"

    // Java language implementation
