ORLite::Mirror − Extend ORLite to support remote SQLite databases


  # Regular ORLite on a readonly SQLite database
  use ORLite 'path/mydb.sqlite';
  # The equivalent for a remote SQLite database
  use ORLite::Mirror 'http://myserver/path/mydb.sqlite';
  # You can read compressed SQLite databases as well
  use ORLite::Mirror 'http://myserver/path/mydb.sqlite.gz';
  use ORLite::Mirror 'http://myserver/path/mydb.sqlite.bz2';
  (Of course you can only do one of the above)


ORLite provides a readonly ORM API when it loads a readonly SQLite database from your local system.

By combining this capability with LWP , ORLite::Mirror goes one step better and allows you to load a SQLite database from any arbitrary URI in readonly form as well.

As demonstrated in the synopsis above, you using ORLite::Mirror in the same way, but provide a URL instead of a file name.

If the URL explicitly ends with a ’.gz’ or ’.bz2’ then ORLite::Mirror will decompress the file before loading it.
