Exodus logo

Exodus is a MongoDB data migration tool for the Deno runtime environment.

Usage

The following flags should be used before running any command:

deno run -A --unstable

Followed by the version of the cli.ts file:

https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts

deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts

It will also run with the following flags --unstable --allow-read --allow-write --allow-net if you wish to be more specific about permissions

deno run --unstable --allow-read --allow-write --allow-net https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts

Initializing a Project

  • init : Initializes a new Exodus migration project by generating a /migrations directory and a setup.ts file in the current working directory. Modify the setup.ts with your MongoDB database connection information. Exodus uses the settings in this file to connect to your database.
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts init

Creating Migrations

  • create [commitMessage]: Creates a new migration file in the /migrations directory containing a template for fwd and back functionality
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts create commitMessage

    Running Migrations

You may choose to apply migrations incrementally or all at once using the fwd or full commands respectively. For every successful migration file a log document will be created and stored in a 'migrationLog' collection within the database. Avoid manually altering these log files if possible, as exodus uses them to keep track of the current state of the migrations.

  • fwd : Applies the next pending migration
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts fwd
  • full : Applies all pending migrations
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts full

Rollingback changes is done incrementally. Successful rollbacks will delete the associated log file from the migrationLog collection.

  • back : Rollback changes of last applied migration
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts back

Checking Applied Migrations

You can display the current status of your migrations

  • log : Displays a table of current migrations pending and migrations applied. This log data is retrieved from the migrationLog collections in your database.
deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts log

Migrations will create an exodusLog.txt locally (cwd) that will keep a complete history of all migrations applied / rolled back. Unlike the migrationLog documents this file is non-essential to exodus and can be removed without affecting any features.

Full Database Migration Usage

Initializing a Migration

  • dbInit : Initializes a new Exodus migration by generating a /database-migration directory and a setupExtract.ts and setupApply.ts file in the current working directory. Modify the setupExtract.ts with your MongoDB database connection information inorder to pull the data you would like to migrate. Modify the setupApply.ts with your second MongoDB database connection information in order to apply the data you would like to migrate. Exodus uses the settings in these files to connect to your database.
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts dbInit

    Extracting Data

  • extract : Extracts the data of an existing MongoDB database and creates a directory with a corresponding name to the extracted database. Within said directory, a data folder is generated populated by files containing the data of each collection in the extracted database.
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts extract

    Applying/Migrating Data

  • apply : Applies the extracted data to the database specified in the setupApply.ts file. During application to the new database, apply removes the MongoDB given id from each document, however if the user would like to keep a custom id simply add the argument of apply [ keepId ] to do so.
    deno run -A --unstable https://deno.land/x/exodus@0.1.7/cli.ts apply
