Momy

Momy is a simple cli tool for replicating MongoDB to MySQL in realtime.

  • Enable SQL query on data in NoSQL database
  • Enable to be accessed by Excel / Access

Momy

Installation

$ npm install -g momy

or install it within the project locally:

$ npm install --save momy

Preparation

MongoDB

Momy uses Replica Set feature in MongoDB. But you don't have to replicate between MongoDB actually. Just follow the steps below.

Start a new mongo instance with no data:

$ mongod --replSet "rs0" --oplogSize 100

Open another terminal, and go to MongoDB Shell:

$ mongo
....
> rs.initiate()

rs.initiate() command prepare the collections that is needed for replication.

MySQL

Launch MySQL instance, and create the new database to use. The tables will be created or updated when syncing. You'll see mongo_to_mysql, too. This is needed to store the information for syncing. (don't remove it)

Configuration

Create a new momyfile.json file like this:

{
  "src": "mongodb://localhost:27017/dbname",
  "dist": "mysql://root@localhost:3306/dbname",
  "prefix": "t_",
  "case": "camel",
  "collections": {
    "collection1": {
      "_id": "number",
      "createdAt": "DATETIME",
      "field1": "number",
      "field2": "string",
      "field3": "boolean",
      "field4.subfield": "string"
    },
    "collection2": {
      "_id": "string",
      "createdAt": "DATETIME",
      "field1": "number",
      "field2": "string",
      "field3": "boolean",
      "field4": "TEXT"
    }
  }
}
  • src: the URL of the MongoDB server
  • dist: the URL of the MySQL server
  • prefix: optional prefix for table name. The name of the table would be t_collection1 in the example above.
  • fieldCase: optional. snake or camel. See the section below.
  • exclusions: optional. Chars or a range of chars to exclude: "\uFFFD"
  • inclusions: optional. Chars or a range of chars to include: "\u0000-\u007F"
  • collections: set the collections and fields to sync

_id field is required for each collection and should be string or number.

Field names and types

"<field_name>": "<field_tipe>"

or, field_name could be dot-concatenated:

"<field_name>.<sub_name>": "<field_tipe>"

For example, if you have { a: { b: { c: 'hey!' } } } then "a.b.c": "string"

Currently these native types are supported:

  • BIGINT
  • TINYINT
  • VARCHAR
  • DATE
  • DATETIME
  • TIME
  • TEXT

There're also some aliases:

  • number => BIGINT
  • boolean => TINYINT
  • string => VARCHAR

Field name normalization: fieldCase

Some system like Microsoft Access don't allow dot-concatenated field names, so address.street will cause an error. For such a case, use fieldCase:

  • snake: address.street --> address_street
  • camel: address.street --> addressStreet

Note: if you set fieldCase value, the name of _id field will change into id without _, too.

Usage

At the first run, we need to import all the data from MongoDB:

$ momy --config momyfile.json --import

Then start the daemon to streaming data:

$ momy --config momyfile.json

or

$ forever momy --config momyfile.json

For contributors

Before testing, install MySQL into your environment. Then, create a new database:

$ mysql -uroot -e 'create database momy;'

To run the tests:

$ npm test

To test the code manually, start mongodb and momy:

$ npm run pretest
$ npm run try

Do something, then kill momy and stop mongodb:

$ npm run posttest
