dbschema 1.1.2

Schema migration made easy

dbschema is a tool to run MySQL or PostgreSQL migrations automatically. Using a table, it keeps a state of previous migrations to avoid duplicates.

Features:

  • Support for MySQL and PostgreSQL
  • Optional pre and post-migration queries (for example to update privileges)
  • Multiple migrations in multiple databases can be processed as one.

Installation

Install dbschema

pip3 install dbschema

Create a config file

Create the file ~/.dbschema.yml and add your databases configuration. See example

Create migrations table

dbschema uses a table called migrations_applied to keep track of migrations already applied to avoid duplication. See the schema for MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Migrations folder structure

For each database, you need to have a migration path (setting path in the migration file).

Within that path you need to create one folder per migration. This folder must contain a file called up.sql with the SQL queries and optionally a file called down.sql for rollbacks.

/path/to/migrations/db1/
|-- migration1/
|   |-- up.sql
|   |-- down.sql
|-- migration2/
|   |-- up.sql
|...
/path/to/migrations/db2/
|-- migration1/
|   |-- up.sql
|-- migration2/
|   |-- up.sql
|   |-- down.sql
|...

Usage

Apply pending migrations

dbschema

# or to specify a config file path
dbschema --config /path/to/config.yml

# or to migrate only a specific database
dbschema --tag db1

Rollback

dbschema --tag db1 --rollback migration1

Example

$ dbschema
  * Applying migrations for db1 (`test` on postgresql)
    -> Migration `migration1` applied
    -> Migration `migration2` applied
    -> Migration `migration3` applied
  * Migrations applied
  * Applying migrations for db2 (`test` on mysql)
    -> Migration `migration1` applied
    -> Migration `migration2` applied
    -> Migration `migration3` applied
  * Migrations applied
$
$ dbschema --tag db2 --rollback migration1
  * Rolling back mysql -> `migration1`
    -> Migration `migration1` has been rolled back
$
