Verify that SQLite files can be opened using Datasette


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-verify

This plugin depends on Datasette 0.59a2 or higher, as it uses the register_commands() plugin hook.


To confirm that files can be opened by Datasette, run the following:

datasette verify file1.db file2.db

You can pass one or more file paths.

The command will exit silently with a 0 exit code if the files are all valid SQLite databases that Datasette can open.

It will exit with a 1 exit code and display an error for the first file it finds that is not valid.


To set up this plugin locally, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd datasette-verify
python3 -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and test dependencies:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
