The sqlite backend is just a demo for programmers. It shows how to write
a backend which converts directly from the internal data representation
into a different, complex format (database schema in this case) without
going through an intermediate text representation (like vCard). Using
MySQL instead would be possible, but not very useful, because the
conversion is not very complete.
Which one is suitable for Contacts, Calendar, Tasks together?
I need to be able to access this backend do some manipulation at
runtime before syncing with the server.
For your purpose, you better use either:
1. The file backend (as in
). Then you can
directly manipulate each item with a text editor, shell tools or
in your own program.
2. EDS or Akonadi with SyncEvolution's command line to manipulate
items. See https://syncevolution.org/wiki/item-operations
