Error: It looks like you're trying to load a SpatiaLite database without first loading the SpatiaLite module.

This error message could sniff around in the common locations for the SpatiaLite module and output the CLI command you should use to enable it:

datasette spatial.db --load-extension=/usr/local/lib/mod_spatialite.dylib

Even better: if Datasette had a --spatialite option which automatically loads the extension from common locations, if it can find it.
