direct-sqlite: Low-level binding to SQLite3. Includes UTF8 and BLOB support.

[ bsd3, database, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package is not very different from the other SQLite3 bindings out there, but it fixes a few deficiencies I was finding. As compared to bindings-sqlite3, it is slightly higher-level, in that it supports marshalling of data values to and from the database. In particular, it supports strings encoded as UTF8, and BLOBs represented as ByteStrings.
