Is Andrew Using an Advanced way of creating the sqlite database? What are the Advantages?

HI all,

I am currently learning sequelize, and am using this tutorial along with other tutorials I am following from Youtube. One tutorial, in particular, at this url https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NKNfXtKk0c uses a much simpler way of importing a particular db by just running a command that is listed on the docs for sequelize: npm install --save mysql. Andrew seems to have sqlite3 installed using that cli, and it is not on his package.json file. Rather the cli creates several files. Is there advantages to this? it seems to be a vastly different way of installing a db onto your project. Is it because he already has the db set up using express? is it a more advanced way of doing it?

What are your thoughts on these two ways of creating the databases.
