Sooty: Simple Database Migrator
Sooty is a simple database migration tool for postgres databases. When working with a legacy application, more often than not, the application has no means of migrating the database forward. This is a simple library to bridge that gap.
The name Sooty comes from the bird Sooty Shearwater which can travel over 20,000 miles during it's annual migration. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sooty_shearwater
sooty create add index on product ids $ Created directory './migrations' $ Created migration file './migrations/create_index_on_product_ids_20160218223012.sql $ cat ./migrations/create_index_on_product_ids_20160218223012.sql -- Just type some SQL! -- ALTER TABLE products ADD COLUMN customer_code varchar(11)
To run your migrations just
$ sooty run <database_url>
If no database url is provided, sooty will try to use the environment variable DATABASE_URL
