Is it safe to create a VIEW in the database of Anki?

Hi folks

I’m trying to self-learn Python and SQLite so that I create an add-on. Can I ask:

  • is it safe to create and save a view in the Anki database?

  • will that have any performance issues during reviews or when using Anki?

I want to create a view because I don’t want to repeat the same queries over and over again :slight_smile:

I make backups and all. But it’s getting tedious :stuck_out_tongue:

Any re-assurance/advice will be appreciated!

I do not recommend doing that, as if Anki ever happens to use such a name in the future, it will break things.
