How I setup sqlite3 on Ruby on windows

Gabriel Baldez asked in Ruby

I installed sqlite3 in my system when I run sqlite3 --version this appears:
3.37.0 2021-11-27 14:13:22 bd41822c7424d393a30e92ff6cb254d25c26769889c1499a18a0b9339f5d6c8a

But when I try run the server or the command bundle install this message appears:
An error occurred while installing sqlite3 (1.4.2), and Bundler cannot continue.

In Gemfile:

I already have try so many things, edit Gemfile, put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3.def on bin folder on Ruby. Run this command to try get sqlite3 using the source
Now I go try using WSL. Somebody can help me?


If you are using Windows use chocolatey to install your sqlite package and dev libraries

choco install sqlite

personally do your ruby/rails work under WSL2 if you want a fun time under windows. since WSL2 now supports systemd you will be able to do 100% the same as you would as a full ubuntu instance

use this guide to get WSL2 running


if running ubuntu just add the sqlite dev lib package

sudo apt install libsqlite3-dev
