Schema Sync v0.9.5
a MySQL schema synchronization utility

schemasync [options] <source> <target>

# source/target format: mysql://user:pass@host:port/database
# output format: <database>[_<tag>].YYYYMMDD.(patch|revert)[_<version>].sql

Schema Sync will generate the SQL necessary to migrate the schema of a source database to a target database (patch script), as well as a the SQL necessary to undo the changes after you apply them (revert script).

* Schema Sync does not alter your database. It only generates the .sql files containing the differences. You must apply the changes. 
* Schema Sync does not yet recognize Tables or Columns that have been renamed. A rename will result in the old table or column being dropped and the new one added. 
* All ADD|MODIFY COLUMN statements have the AFTER (or FIRST) SQL syntax even if no move is required. 
* COMMENTS and AUTO_INCREMENT values are not by synced by default. See help (-h) for details.
* Partitions (MySQL 5.1+) are not yet supported

-h, --help            show this help message and exit
-V, --version         show version and exit.
-r, --revision        increment the migration script version number
                      if a file with the same name already exists.
-a, --sync-auto-inc   sync the AUTO_INCREMENT value for each table.
-c, --sync-comments   sync the COMMENT field for all tables AND columns
-D, --no-date         removes the date from the file format
--charset=CHARSET     set the connection charset, default: utf8
--tag=TAG             tag the migration scripts as <database>_<tag>. 
                      Valid characters include [A-Za-z0-9-_]
                    directory to write the migration scrips. 
                    The default is current working directory. 
                    Must use absolute path if provided.
                    set the directory to write the log to.
