Dump the contents of a database

This repo contains an easy to use class to dump a database using Nodejs. Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and MongoDB are supported. Behind the scenes, mysqldump, pg_dump, sqlite3 and mongodump are used.

Here are simple examples of how to create a database dump with different drivers:

MySQL

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MySql.create()
.setDbName('dbName')
.setUserName('userName')
.setPassword('password')
.dumpToFile('./dump.sql');

PostgreSQL

const { PostgreSql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
PostgreSql.create()
.setDbName('dbName')
.setUserName('userName')
.setPassword('password')
.dumpToFile('./dump.sql');

SQLite

const { Sqlite } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
Sqlite.create()
.setDbName('path_to_sqlite.sqlite')
.dumpToFile('dump.sql');

MongoDB

const { MongoDb } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MongoDb.create()
.setDbName('dbName')
.setCollection('collectionName')
.dumpToFile('./dump.gz');

Requirements

For dumping MySQL-db's mysqldump should be installed.

For dumping PostgreSQL-db's pg_dump should be installed.

For dumping SQLite-db's sqlite3 should be installed.

For dumping MongoDB-db's mongodump should be installed.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

npm install @shagital/db-dumper

Or with yarn

yarn add @shagital/db-dumper

Dump specific tables

Using an array:

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MySql.create()
    .setDbName(databaseName)
    .setUserName(userName)
    .setPassword(password)
    .setIncludedTables(['table1', 'table2', 'table3'])
    .dumpToFile('dump.sql');

Using a string:

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MySql.create()
    .setDbName(databaseName)
    .setUserName(userName)
    .setPassword(password)
    .setIncludedTables('table1,table2,table3')
    .dumpToFile('dump.sql');

Excluding tables from the dump

Using an array:

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MySql.create()
    .setDbName(databaseName)
    .setUserName(userName)
    .setPassword(password)
    .setExcludedTables(['table1', 'table2', 'table3'])
    .dumpToFile('dump.sql');

Using a string:

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
MySql.create()
    .setDbName(databaseName)
    .setUserName(userName)
    .setPassword(password)
    .setExcludedTables('table1','table2','table3')
    .dumpToFile('dump.sql');

Do not write CREATE TABLE statements that create each dumped table.

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
let dumpCommand = MySql.create()
    .setDbName('dbname')
    .setUserName('username')
    .setPassword('password')
    .doNotCreateTables()
    .getDumpCommand('dump.sql', 'credentials.txt');

Adding extra options

If you want to add an arbitrary option to the dump command you can use addExtraOption

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
let dumpCommand = MySql.create()
    .setDbName('dbname')
    .setUserName('username')
    .setPassword('password')
    .addExtraOption('--xml')
    .getDumpCommand('dump.sql', 'credentials.txt');

If you're working with MySql you can set the database name using --databases as an extra option. This is particularly useful when used in conjunction with the --add-drop-database mysqldump option (see the mysqldump docs).

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
let dumpCommand = MySql.create()
    .setUserName('username')
    .setPassword('password')
    .addExtraOption('--databases dbname')
    .addExtraOption('--add-drop-database')
    .getDumpCommand('dump.sql', 'credentials.txt');

With MySql, you also have the option to use the --all-databases extra option. This is useful when you want to run a full backup of all the databases in the specified MySQL connection.

const { MySql } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');
let dumpCommand = MySql.create()
    .setUserName('username')
    .setPassword('password')
    .addExtraOption('--all-databases')
    .getDumpCommand('dump.sql', 'credentials.txt');

Please note that using the .addExtraOption('--databases dbname') or .addExtraOption('--all-databases') will override the database name set on a previous .setDbName() call.

Using compression

If you want to compress the outputted file, you can use one of the compressors and the resulted dump file will be compressed.

There is one compressor that comes out of the box: GzipCompressor. It will compress your db dump with gzip. Make sure gzip is installed on your system before using this.

const { MySql, GzipCompressor } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');

let dumpCommand = MySql.create()
    .setDbName('dbname')
    .setUserName('username')
    .setPassword('password')
    .useCompressor(new GzipCompressor())
    .dumpToFile('dump.sql.gz');

Creating your own compressor

You can create you own compressor implementing the Compressor class. Here's how that class looks like:

class Compressor
{
    useCommand() {};

    useExtension() {};
}

The useCommand should simply return the compression command the db dump will get pumped to. Here's the implementation of GzipCompression.

const { Compressor } = require('@shagital/db-dumper');

class GzipCompressor extends Compressor
{
    useCommand()
    {
        return 'gzip';
    }

    useExtension()
    {
        return 'gz';
    }
}
