An awesome CLI for SurrealDB migrations (provides commands to scaffold, create and apply migrations).
cargo install surrealdb-migration
Warning This project is not production-ready, use at your own risk.
The SurrealDB Migrations aims to simplify the creation of a SurrealDB database schema and the evolution of the database through migrations. A SurrealDB migration project is divided into 3 categories: schema, event and migration.
A schema file represents no more than one SurrealDB table. The list of schemas can be seen as the Query model (in a CQRS pattern). The
schemas folder can be seen as a view of the current data model.
An event file represents no more than one SurrealDB event and the underlying table. The list of events can be seen as the Command model (in a CQRS pattern). The
events folder can be seen as a view of the different ways to update the data model.
A migration file represents a change in SurrealDB data. It can be a change in the point of time between two schema changes. Examples are: when a column is renamed or dropped, when a table is renamed or dropped, when a new data is required (with default value), etc...
You can start a migration project by scaffolding a new project using the following command line:
surrealdb-migration scaffold --template empty
This will create the necessary folders and files in order to perform migrations. The
empty template should look like this:
There are a number of pre-defined templates so you can play around and get started quickly.
Once you have created your migration project, you can start writing your own model. Based on the folders you saw earlier, you can create schema files, event files and migration files.
You can create strict schema files that represent tables stored in SurrealDB.
surrealdb-migration create schema post --fields title,content,author,created_at,status
This will create a schemaless table with predefined fields:
DEFINE TABLE post SCHEMALESS; DEFINE FIELD title ON post; DEFINE FIELD content ON post; DEFINE FIELD author ON post; DEFINE FIELD created_at ON post; DEFINE FIELD status ON post;
You can also create events in the same way.
surrealdb-migration create event publish_post --fields post_id,created_at
This will define a table event with predefined fields:
DEFINE TABLE publish_post SCHEMALESS; DEFINE FIELD post_id ON publish_post; DEFINE FIELD created_at ON publish_post; DEFINE EVENT publish_post ON TABLE publish_post WHEN $before == NONE THEN ( # TODO );
And when updating data, you can create migration files this way:
surrealdb-migration create AddAdminUser
This will create a new file using the current date & time of the day, like
20230317_153201_AddAdminUser.surql for example. All migrations files should be listed in a temporal order.
Finally, when you are ready, you can apply your schema and migrations to the database using the following command line:
