grunt-mongo-migrations

A helper grunt task to manage Mongoose MongoDB database migrations.

Dependency status Build Status

Description

grunt-mongo-migrations works by keeping track of migration files that it executes in the migrations_versions MongoDB collection. You create and write your migrations which you then execute on your server. Migrations that were already executed will not execute again.

Installation

$ npm install grunt-mongo-migrations

Tests

$ npm test

Usage

Gruntfile

module.exports = (grunt) ->
  grunt.loadNpmTasks 'grunt-mongo-migrations'

  grunt.initConfig
    migrations:
      path: "#{__dirname}/migrations"
      template: grunt.file.read "#{__dirname}/migrations/_template.coffee" # optional
      mongo: 'mongodb://localhost:12345'
      ext: "coffee" # default `coffee`

_template.coffee

By default the task will generate a migration in CoffeeScript using the same template as in this example. You can of course provide your own template in JavaScript.

module.exports =
  requiresDowntime: FIXME # true or false

  up: (callback) ->
    callback()

  test: ->
    describe 'up', ->
      before ->
      after ->
      it 'works'

Down Time Management

requiresDowntime is an option that intentionaly set to invalid value so that developer has to fix it. The flag is meant for your own deployment pipeline to be aware that there's a migration that requires server down time.

Tasks

  • migrate:generate
  • migrate:pending
  • migrate:all
  • migrate:one
  • migrate:test

migrate:generate

Will create a migration using template in the file name with a [timestamp]_[name].[ext]

$ grunt migrate:generate --name=rename_created_on_to_created_at

Running "migrate:generate" task
>> Created `./migrations/20131108211056037_rename_created_on_to_created_at.coffee`

Done, without errors.

migrate:pending

Prints out a list of pending migrations

$ grunt migrate:pending

Running "migrate:pending" task
>> `20131108193444023_move_users` is pending (requires downtime)
>> `20131108211056037_rename_created_on_to_created_at` is pending

migrate:all

Runs all pending migrations.

$ grunt migrate:all

Running "migrate:all" task
>> Running migration `20131108193444023_test1`
>> Running migration `20131108211056037_rename_created_on_to_created_at`
>> Finished migrations

Done, without errors.

Running this again will do nothing because all migrations have been ran.

$ grunt migrate:all

Running "migrate:all" task
>> Finished migrations

Done, without errors.

migrate:one

Runs specific migration by name. If it was already executed before, will generate an error.

$ grunt migrate:one --name=rename_created_on_to_created_at

Running "migrate:one" task
>> Running migration `20131108211056037_rename_created_on_to_created_at`
>> Finished migrations

Done, without errors.

migrate:test

Runs specific migration by name via test runner. You should take care of using correct test databases. The template includes a proposed way of copying development database into test on every run.

$ grunt migrate:test --name=rename_created_on_to_created_at

Running "migrate:test" task
>> Testing migration `20131108211056037_rename_created_on_to_created_at`
>> Finished migrations

Done, without errors.
