I am attempting an offline mode for my application as often I need to access my database in places that are strictly locked down. The idea would be to load a subset of the data I need before going onsite, then move that data to a temporary sqLite database, and sync back when I am done. 


It’s just a description of the manual process I have used to export a database from MySQL and import it into SQLite, compiled for the benefit of my students when they were learning about online vs. local database management systems. It’s not perfect, and I have no doubt that others out there have come up with better, more automated ways to do it.
