Will try and let you know. I however tried compiling syncevolution
with --enable-sqlite, still uses file based data store for contacts.
There were no compilation issues and configure showed sqlite selected as Yes.
Do i need to do something else to enable sqlite? Or sqlite backend is
showcased only as an example in the bundle?

The conversion of the internal representation to and from the demo
sqlite schema. Several properties are not getting stored.

That's certainly a useful programming exercise. I am not sure whether
it's suitable for a production system, though, if that's what you intend
If you need a database as storage instead of EDS or the plain files,
then you might also want to look at the sqlite support in libsynthesis.
See chapter "12. <server type="sql"/"odbc">, <client
SQL/ODBC based Server or Client Config" in
It's probably going to be more complete and better tested.
SyncEvolution does not use that mode, it always runs as server or client
type='plugin'. It should be possible to change that.
