I wrote a simple AppleScript that saves data to a Database Events database. I see the database (DBEV file) in my
~/Documents/Databases folder, and I am wondering if there is a simple graphical utility that I can use to view its contents.
I ended up creating my own: https://github.com/dtrebbien/Songs-Database-Viewer
In my case, the database is a simple database of songs, where each record has "Artist Name" and "Song Title" fields, so my Songs Database Viewer just has two columns for those fields. Though, Songs Database Viewer is adaptable to other schemas by adding more table columns in Interface Builder and setting the identifiers of the table columns to the field names.
Alternatively, a Database Events database is based on SQLite3, so the DBEV file can be opened with the command line
sqlite3 utility. On Lion, the two important tables are
ZFIELD. Each row in
ZRECORD corresponds to a Database Events record and each row in
ZFIELD corresponds to a Database Events field.
