migrate

Abstract migration framework for node

Installation

$ npm install migrate

Creating Migrations

To create a migration, execute migrate create with an optional title. node-migrate will create a node module within ./migrations/ which contains the following two exports:

exports.up = function(next){
  next();
};

exports.down = function(next){
  next();
};

All you have to do is populate these, invoking next() when complete, and you are ready to migrate!

For example:

$ migrate create add-pets
$ migrate create add-owners

The first call creates ./migrations/000-add-pets.js, which we can populate:

  var db = require('./db');

  exports.up = function(next){
    db.rpush('pets', 'tobi');
    db.rpush('pets', 'loki');
    db.rpush('pets', 'jane', next);
  };

  exports.down = function(next){
    db.rpop('pets');
    db.rpop('pets', next);
  };

The second creates ./migrations/001-add-owners.js, which we can populate:

  var db = require('./db');

  exports.up = function(next){
    db.rpush('owners', 'taylor');
    db.rpush('owners', 'tj', next);
  };

  exports.down = function(next){
    db.rpop('owners');
    db.rpop('owners', next);
  };

Running Migrations

When first running the migrations, all will be executed in sequence.

$ migrate
up : migrations/000-add-pets.js
up : migrations/001-add-jane.js
up : migrations/002-add-owners.js
up : migrations/003-coolest-pet.js
migration : complete

Subsequent attempts will simply output "complete", as they have already been executed in this machine. node-migrate knows this because it stores the current state in ./migrations/.migrate which is typically a file that SCMs like GIT should ignore.

$ migrate
migration : complete

If we were to create another migration using migrate create, and then execute migrations again, we would execute only those not previously executed:

$ migrate
up : migrates/004-coolest-owner.js
