I was looking for how to create an SQLite database to use with Prisma, when I found you can initialize an empty SQLite database just by creating an empty file.
I was overcomplicating it, but with SQLite initializing a new database is very very simple
For example you can use
touch from the command line to create a SQLite database named
$ touch storage.db
The same approach can be taken when duplicating a database with all its tables, or backing it up. You just copy the file.
