I was playing with sqlite-zstd, and upon trying to load the extension…

.load libsqlite_zstd
Error: unknown command or invalid arguments:  "load". Enter ".help" for help


Turns out, the sqlite install on macOS is built without the ability to load extensions.

Luckily, Homebrew has a version that’s much more useful

brew install sqlite

Note that this is not linked by default. You’ll either need to link it

brew link sqlite --force

Or, specify the path.
