Groovy Liquibase

A pluggable parser for Liquibase that allows the creation of changelogs in a Groovy DSL, rather than hurtful XML. If this DSL isn't reason enough to adopt Liquibase, then there is no hope for you.

Presently a work in progress. The project aim is to create as close a match for the standard XML format and the Grails Database MigrationsPlugin as possible, such that migration back and forth is easy and very little new documentation should be necessary.

A sample Gradle build file, liquibase.gradle, is provided as a convenience means of executing Liquibase commands using the Groovy DSL. It is not intended to be a long-term plugin solution.


Work is currently being done by Tim Berglund of the August Technology Group.

Additional contributions by Erwin van Brandwijk, intern of 42bv Netherlands.

  • Support for the customChange. Using groovy code, liquibase changes and database SQL in a changeSet.

  • Support for the property tag.

  • Support for extensions. modifyColumn is probably a good place to start.

  • Proper testing of validCheckSum under changeSet. It's implemented, but I have not tested it properly.

  • Deployment to Maven Central as soon as it's baked enough to ask people to use it.
