For simpler applications with a database, complicated ORM like migrations are overkill, but database versioning is still very useful.
For that purpose, I created this package.
Below you'll find the documentation of the library. Source code can be found at https://bitbucket.org/garrcomm/easy-migrations.
The configuration file is in ini format.
There are a few default locations where configuration files should be located. It's also possible to specify a config file with the
--config-file [path] argument,
or by specifying a specific config value with the
--config [key] [value] argument.
If more then one config file is found and/or specified, they will be loaded in this sequence:
--config [key] [value]
A config file can look like this:
[migrator] ; The path and namespace in which migrations will be added path = app/migrations ;namespace = Migrations ; Default chmod for folders ;path_attr = 0755 ; Default chmod for files ;file_attr = 0644 ; Can be mysqli, maybe more implementations will be added in the future engine = mysqli ; MySQLi connection info hostname = localhost username = root password = rootroot database = mydatabase port = 3306 ;socket = /var/run/mysqld.sock ; Name of the versioning table ;version_table = _migration_versions
Sections other than
[migrator] are ignored and values added with
--config [key] [value] are interpreted as if they existed in the
Values that are commented out in the example above are default values.
