Versioning and auditing extension for SQLAlchemy.

Features

  • Creates versions for inserts, deletes and updates
  • Does not store updates which don't change anything
  • Supports alembic migrations
  • Can revert objects data as well as all object relations at given transaction even if the object was deleted
  • Transactions can be queried afterwards using SQLAlchemy query syntax
  • Query for changed records at given transaction
  • Temporal relationship reflection. Version object's relationship show the parent objects relationships as they where in that point in time.
  • Supports native versioning for PostgreSQL database (trigger based versioning)

QuickStart

pip install SQLAlchemy-Continuum

In order to make your models versioned you need two things:

  1. Call make_versioned() before your models are defined.
  2. Add __versioned__ to all models you wish to add versioning to
from sqlalchemy_continuum import make_versioned


make_versioned()


class Article(Base):
    __versioned__ = {}
    __tablename__ = 'article'

    id = sa.Column(sa.Integer, primary_key=True, autoincrement=True)
    name = sa.Column(sa.Unicode(255))
    content = sa.Column(sa.UnicodeText)


article = Article(name=u'Some article', content=u'Some content')
session.add(article)
session.commit()

# article has now one version stored in database
article.versions[0].name
# u'Some article'

article.name = u'Updated name'
session.commit()

article.versions[1].name
# u'Updated name'


# lets revert back to first version
article.versions[0].revert()

article.name
# u'Some article'
