========= Nashvegas ========= The purpose of this app is to enable a plug and play method for managing database changes. Database migrations is a large topic with a lot of different approaches. This approach worked well for my needs and maybe it will for you as well. How to Use ---------- * pip install nashvegas * Add the application to your INSTALLED_APPS list in your settings.py file. * Execute the command line: $ ./manage.py upgradedb --create|--list|--execute Options ------- * ``--create`` - Compares database with current models in apps that are installed and outputs the sql for them so that you can easily pipe the contents to a migration. * ``--list`` - Lists all the scripts that will need to be executed. * ``--execute`` - Executes all the scripts that need to be executed. Conventions ----------- Part of the simplicity of this solution is based on the naming conventions of the sql scripts. They should be named in a manner that enforces order. Some examples include:: YYYYMMDD-01.sql 0001_short_comment_about_migration.sql 0001.sql The model, ``nashvegas.Migration`` will get synced into your database if it doesn't exist when you go to execute any of the ``upgradedb`` commands. In this model the scripts that have been executed will be recorded, effectively versioning your database.
