Does SQLitePCLRaw.bundle_zetetic work with the SQLCipher for Xamarin?


#1

Hello, I came across
SQLitePCLRaw.bundle_zetetic today, it looked promising as a way to use SQLCipher without having to migrate to SQLite.net

So right now, I have both sqlite-net-pcl and SQLite.Net on my iOS solution (because that’s what the nuget package is dependent on) and I have

installed sqlite-net-base and SQLitePCLRaw.core -Version 1.1.10-pre20180223200113

and it hasn’t been successful so far.

Could you let me know if this is possible? Or is it just disaster waiting to happen?

Thank you

Hello @swu - Thanks for getting in touch about SQLCipher. Unfortunately, at this time there are some issues using SQLitePCLRaw.bundle_zetetic on several platforms. However, the package author, has been working with us to resolve those issues, and we have been performing validation testing across all the platforms we support. This still requires some additional engineering on our part, as well as releases of dependent packages, etc. When that work is compete in the future, it this will ultimately become our supported integration approach for SQLCipher.
