    Please read stackoverflow.blog/2010/09/29/good-subjective-bad-subjective then edit your question to give more details of what you've tried, what works, what fails and what you don't understand about the failures.

The answer for your question can't be given that easily. But here, let me try. Follow this flow.

  1. Install and configure MariaDB
  2. Install python framework that gives you the connectivity with the database.
  3. Use pigpio with python and write a program to capture the readings and use the database library to save the data. Last thing , you have to find the SPI pins from specs of RPi. This way you can connect the whole thing togather.

Ask anything if you are stuck.
