MySQL to Sqlite converter
#!/bin/sh
# Converts a mysqldump file into a Sqlite 3 compatible file. It also extracts the MySQL `KEY xxxxx` from the
# CREATE block and create them in separate commands _after_ all the INSERTs.
# Awk is choosen because it's fast and portable. You can use gawk, original awk or even the lightning fast mawk.
# The mysqldump file is traversed only once.
# Usage: $ ./mysql2sqlite mysqldump-opts db-name | sqlite3 database.sqlite
# Example: $ ./mysql2sqlite --no-data -u root -pMySecretPassWord myDbase | sqlite3 database.sqlite
# Thanks to and @artemyk and @gkuenning for their nice tweaks.

Hello,

I ran this script, and received

mysqldump: Error: 'Expression #6 of SELECT list is not in GROUP BY clause and contains nonaggregated column 'information_schema.FILES.EXTRA' which is not functionally dependent on columns in GROUP BY clause; this is incompatible with sql_mode=only_full_group_by' when trying to dump tablespaces memory

after running ls -l on the file, i can confirm there is data in the file.

If someone has runs into the same problem...

I had a problem with "umlauts" (äüöß...) while exporting a latin1 mysql database and converting to sqlite.

In the mysqldump, all umlauts were displayed as ? or combinations like <fe>.

The cause was awk, which could be fixed by converting the mysql dump from latin1 to utf8 before parsing.
Found the solution here

mysqldump  --compatible=ansi --skip-extended-insert --compact  "$@" | \
iconv -c -f latin1 -t utf8 | \
awk '
