Pier 8 DB Tools

Build Status NuGet

A CLI that adds and migrates database migrations for MS SQL and PostgreSQL.

Quick Start


dotnet tool install -g dotnet-db-migrate

Example Usage

dotnet db add-migration "AddContactsTable"

Added migration script ./20200520180400_AddContactsTable.sql

You would then add the SQL for the migration.

eg, for PostgreSQL.

CREATE TABLE contacts(
  id UUID PRIMARY KEY DEFAULT gen_random_uuid(),
  name TEXT,
  email TEXT

Then you can execute the migration using the following command,

dotnet db migrate "Server=localhost;Port=5432;Database=db-migrate;User Id=postgres;Password=password;" -p psql

Master ConnectionString => Host=localhost;Port=5432;Database=db-migrate;Username=postgres;Password=********
Created database db-migrate
