TinyDB - Is it possible?

I have data trapped in my app that I would like to transport to a newer version of my app. I am thinking to trap the data in a text file and then copy it to the new app. Could this work?

The data is 150+ strings having 8 comma delimited items each

Hi, do you have all of your TinyDB data stored in only one namespace?

Yes. all in a single variable.

I have other TinyDB vars stored but they are not important

No I mean do you have all of your Tiny DB data just in one namespace?


Sorry but I am not certain I understand. I put all of it in one DB with var name Data. My app has 7 screens and the data is recorded in one screen but read in two other screens. One screen is the stats table I showed here and the other is a graph screen.

I can easily write all of the needed data into a textbox

Check here, what are namespaces: How do I use TinyDB (feat. namespace)? - #2 by ABG

You can check your project for the component TinyDB and in the designer properties section, you can look for namespace.

One namespace

Your data is stored by TinyDB, in an installed app?
If your phone is rooted, you can get your data here:

otherwise, you can use OCR on the screenshot of the Stats.

Nice answer. I will look. Thanks
Hmm I don't see a data folder. I do have show hidden files turned on
Ahhh my phone is not rooted

Your data in TinyDB still will be there after installing an update of your app

So I should be able to install Etiny into my existing app and grab the string data, then store it in a file and in the receiving app retrieve it?

Yes. Thank you @Taifun . I am needing to port my data from one app to another as well as one fone to another. I think @Kumaraswamy has my answer

Is it possible to export TinyDB data from an another existing app? I don't think so.

Kumaraswamy has EtinyDB and it can save the data to a file and retrieve it. That should work yes?

It's only text. Seems to me it should be portable :thinking:

Hi Kevin, using ETinyDB, you can export all of the application's tiny DB data into a JSON file and also load it back to the app using JSON or file input.

I mean from other app, not the app this extension is inside of.
Is this possible?

What if it's not JSON and only text/strings? Will it still export and import?

I dont get you, can you elaborate more?
