But you cannot do this with a SQLite database file.. any SQLite database file needs to be created via JavaScript. You cannot attach to a specified file

You can attach a file with json format with the database elements or a simple vairable string with json format.


On first run, create the database and insert elements from this json file or variable string.


All the best
