django-dbdump

This tiny Django application provides a "dbdump" management command that wraps mysqldump or pg_dump and allows you to create SQL dumps of your configured databases.

To use, add 'dbdump' to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Usage:

  • $ manage.py dbdump
  • $ manage.py dbdump --db-name=mydb --debug --compress=gzip

You can dump only table schema without data or exclude tables completely using DB_DUMP_EMPTY_TABLES and DB_DUMP_EXCLUDED_TABLES settings inside your settings.DATABASES definition. For example:

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'mysql',
        ...
        'DB_DUMP_EMPTY_TABLES': ['table1', 'table2'],
    }
}

will not include contents of table1 and table2 in your output.
