CreateTable

Analyze and inspect CREATE TABLE SQL statements and translate across databases.

See the introductory post on Brighter Planet's blog.

BETA

Tests and documentation are being added constantly.

TODO: stop making excuses and write a proper README.

Quickstart

Parsing

>> require 'create_table'
=> true
>> c = CreateTable.new(%{
  CREATE TABLE employees
  (employeeid INTEGER NOT NULL,
  lastname VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,
  firstname VARCHAR(25) NOT NULL,
  reportsto INTEGER NULL); 
})
=> #<CreateTable>
>> c.columns.map(&:name)
=> ["employeeid", "lastname", "firstname", "reportsto"]
>> c.columns.map(&:data_type)
=> ["INTEGER", "CHARACTER VARYING(25)", "CHARACTER VARYING(25)", "INTEGER"]
>> c.columns.map(&:allow_null)
=> [false, false, false, true]

Generating cross-platform SQL

>> require 'create_table'
=> true
>> c = CreateTable.new(%{
  CREATE TABLE cats (
    id INTEGER AUTO_INCREMENT, /* AUTO_INCREMENT with an underscore is MySQL-style... */
    nickname CHARACTER VARYING(255),
    birthday DATE,
    license_id INTEGER,
    price NUMERIC(5,2),
    PRIMARY KEY ("id")
  )
})
=> #<CreateTable>
>> c.to_mysql
=> ["CREATE TABLE cats ( `id` INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTO_INCREMENT, nickname CHARACTER VARYING(255), birthday DATE, license_id INTEGER, price NUMERIC(5,2) )"]
>> c.to_postgresql
=> ["CREATE TABLE cats ( \"id\" SERIAL PRIMARY KEY, nickname CHARACTER VARYING(255), birthday DATE, license_id INTEGER, price NUMERIC(5,2) )"]
>> c.to_sqlite3
=> ["CREATE TABLE cats ( \"id\" INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, nickname CHARACTER VARYING(255), birthday DATE, license_id INTEGER, price NUMERIC(5,2) )"]

As a web service

Check out the CreateTable demo web service!

Real-world usage

We will soon use create_table for the Brighter Planet reference data web service.
