Upgrading from a previous version
Upgrading is normally just a matter of using a newer version of the application.
Database schema upgrades should be handled gracefully thanks to liquibase migrations.
I am happy to accept any pull request as long as it respects the following guidelines :
- Meets some basic code quality requirements
- Please do some basic unit testing on your code
- Use current technology stack before introducing any new dependency
- You accept your code to be licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0
- NoteDown should stay KISS : Keep It Simple, Stupid.
Feel free to add your name on the list of contributors below.
In case you need to modify the data model, you should do the following :
application.propertiesto use a real RDBMS (MySQL or PostgreSQL supported)
- Launch the application once in order to create tables
- Add the required modifications to entities
mvn clean install liquibase:diffwill generate a liquibase diff file
- Add the generated change set to
db.changelog-master.xmlwith your author's name and correct incremental id
- Please preferably use XML syntax over pure SQL
- Launch the application and check everything went fine with liquibase migration
