This first generation universal app contained separate projects for desktop and mobile with a “shared” project for common code. The goal was to put as much code as possible in the shared project, which often required some technical gymnastics to accomplish.

Using SQLite on the Universal Windows Platform

SQLite is a cross-platform single-user public-domain (read: ‘free’) embedded relational database engine. It doesn’t require a server and it doesn’t require configuration, but it still provides all essential relational database features including SQL syntax, transactions, indexes, and even common table expressions. I created an UWP sample app that creates and populates a new SQLite database, and demonstrates all SQL CRUD operations: select, insert, update, and delete, and is a more or less representative for a business app. Here’s how the app looks like in browse mode: Before you can use SQLite in a UWP app, you need to install the VSIX package for Universal App Platform development using Visual Studio 2015 from the SQLite download page: Then add a reference to the engine and to the C++ runtime on which it depends (Visual Studio will warn you if you forget the latter): SQLite.Net-PCL exposes a rich API to your code:
