PosgtreSql, MySql and Others

A quick-start guide to working with PostgreSql and other platforms. Install, run, verify. 10-mins capped. Run these commands line by line via CLI tool like Bash, CMD and Powershell.

Install yuniql CLI with Chocolatey or use alternative ways listed here https://yuniql.io/docs/install-yuniql/

choco install yuniql --version=1.0.1

Download samples for PostgreSql. Samples for sqlserver, mysql and other platforms are available here https://github.com/rdagumampan/yuniql/tree/master/samples

git clone https://github.com/rdagumampan/yuniql.git c:\temp\yuniql
cd c:\temp\yuniql\samples\basic-postgresql-sample

Prepare your connection string in an environment variable. This sample uses PostgreSql on Docker container. For more connection string samples, visit https://www.connectionstrings.com/postgresql.

docker run -d -e POSTGRES_USER=sa -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=[email protected]! -e POSTGRES_DB=helloyuniql -p 5432:5432 postgres
SETX YUNIQL_CONNECTION_STRING "Host=localhost;Port=5432;Username=sa;[email protected]!;Database=helloyuniql"

Apply migrations with yuniql run and specify the target platform with --platform. Yuniql discovers the project directory, sorts all versions, creates the target database if it doesn’t exist and runs all migration steps in the right order. These includes .sql files, directories, subdirectories, and csv files.

yuniql run --platform postgresql -a --debug
yuniql list --platform postgresql
