Python: Create a SQLite database and connect with the database and print the version of the SQLite database

Python SQLite Database: Exercise-1 with Solution

Write a Python program to create a SQLite database and connect with the database and print the version of the SQLite database.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import sqlite3
try:
   sqlite_Connection = sqlite3.connect('temp.db')
   conn = sqlite_Connection.cursor()
   print("\nDatabase created and connected to SQLite.")
   sqlite_select_Query = "select sqlite_version();"
   conn.execute(sqlite_select_Query)
   record = conn.fetchall()
   print("\nSQLite Database Version is: ", record)
   conn.close()
except sqlite3.Error as error:
   print("\nError while connecting to sqlite", error)
finally:
   if (sqlite_Connection):
       sqlite_Connection.close()
       print("\nThe SQLite connection is closed.")

Sample Output:

Database created and connected to SQLite.

SQLite Database Version is:  [('3.11.0',)]

The SQLite connection is closed.

Alternate solution (Connect to a SQLite Database):

Python Code :

import  sqlite3
print("creating connecting ...")
conn  =  sqlite3.connect ('mydatabase.db' )
conn . close ()
print("\nThe SQLite connection is closed.")

Sample Output:

creating connecting ...

The SQLite connection is closed.

How to make a chain of function decorators?

from functools import wraps

def makebold(fn):
    @wraps(fn)
    def wrapped(*args, **kwargs):
        return "<b>" + fn(*args, **kwargs) + "</b>"
    return wrapped

def makeitalic(fn):
    @wraps(fn)
    def wrapped(*args, **kwargs):
        return "<i>" + fn(*args, **kwargs) + "</i>"
    return wrapped

@makebold
@makeitalic
def hello():
    return "hello world"

@makebold
@makeitalic
def log(s):
    return s

print hello()        # returns "<b><i>hello world</i></b>"
print hello.__name__ # with functools.wraps() this returns "hello"
print log('hello')   # returns "<b><i>hello</i></b>"
