Helper tool for pg_dumping into git and New Relic


Git-based PostgreSQL database backup utility.

It's a simple javascript/bash/PHP script that saves the SQL dump in the git.

We're using PHP for New Relic because New Relic does not support custom metrics in Node.js yet.

We're using sh since it's a lot easier to use to run shell scripts.

We might port it as pure JS maybe in the future when New Relic has better support for Node.js.

npm install -g gitpgdump

mkdir my-backup-dir
cd my-backup-dir
git init
gitpgdump --newrelic-license='my-license-key' --newrelic-appname="gitpgdump-myapp" --pg="postgres://myuser:mypass@mypghost/mydbname"
