Midas (cargo-migrate)

Crates.io Package Crates.io Downloads License Github Workflow Status

So Midas, king of Lydia, swelled at first with pride when he found he could transform everything he touched to gold; but when he beheld his food grow rigid and his drink harden into golden ice then he understood that this gift was a bane and in his loathing for gold, cursed his prayer.

  • from In Rufinem, Claudian

Do painless migrations.

Supported Database

Currently, the only supported database is Postgres.


Using CLI

Here is a sample command line usage of midas.

midas --database postgres://postgres@localhost:5432/postgres --source migrations up

or you could also use the cargo migrate to integrate it on your cargo workflow.

The command will execute all special (up) SQL migrations files to the database.
Here are the available subcommands:

create    Creates a timestamped migration file
down      Remove all applied migrations
drop      Drops everything inside the database
redo      Redo the last migration
revert    Reverts the last migration
init      Setups and creates initial file directory and env
status    Checks the status of the migration
up        Apply all non-applied migrations

For more info see --help.


If you're into Rust then you can use cargo to install.

  • The minimum supported version of Rust is 1.37.0.
cargo install midas

Binary for different OS distribution can be downloaded here.

What's in the Roadmap

  • TOML DSL for creating database objects
  • Setup multiple drivers (e.g. MySQL, Sqlite3, etc.)
  • Add functionality for setup and drop commands.
  • More to come.
