Introducing npm Enterprise add-ons. Integrate third-party dev tools into npm…

sequelize-auto

Automatically generate bare sequelize models from your database.

Sequelize-Auto

Automatically generate models for SequelizeJS via the command line.

npm install -g sequelize-auto

You will need to install the correct dialect binding globally before using sequelize-auto.

Example for MySQL/MariaDB

npm install -g mysql

Example for Postgres

npm install -g pg pg-hstore

Example for Sqlite3

npm install -g sqlite

Example for MSSQL

npm install -g tedious

[node] sequelize-auto -h <host> -d <database> -u <user> -x [password] -p [port]  --dialect [dialect] -c [/path/to/config] -o [/path/to/models] -t [tableName]

Options:
  -h, --host        IP/Hostname for the database.   [required]
  -d, --database    Database name.                  [required]
  -u, --user        Username for database.
  -x, --pass        Password for database.
  -p, --port        Port number for database.
  -c, --config      JSON file for Sequelize's constructor "options" flag object as defined here: https://sequelize.readthedocs.org/en/latest/api/sequelize/
  -o, --output      What directory to place the models.
  -e, --dialect     The dialect/engine that you're using: postgres, mysql, sqlite
  -a, --additional  Path to a json file containing model definitions (for all tables) which are to be defined within a model's configuration parameter. For more info: https://sequelize.readthedocs.org/en/latest/docs/models-definition/#configuration
  -t, --tables      Comma-separated names of tables to import
sequelize-auto -o "./models" -d sequelize_auto_test -h localhost -u my_username -p 5432 -x my_password -e postgres

Produces a file/files such as ./models/Users.js which looks like:

/* jshint indent: 2 */

module.exports = function(sequelize, DataTypes) {
  return sequelize.define('Users', {
    id: {
      type: DataTypes.INTEGER(11),
      allowNull: false,
      primaryKey: true,
      autoIncrement: true
    },
    username: {
      type: DataTypes.STRING,
      allowNull: true
    },
    touchedAt: {
      type: DataTypes.DATE,
      allowNull: true
    },
    aNumber: {
      type: DataTypes.INTEGER(11),
      allowNull: true
    },
    bNumber: {
      type: DataTypes.INTEGER(11),
      allowNull: true
    },
    validateTest: {
      type: DataTypes.INTEGER(11),
      allowNull: true
    },
    validateCustom: {
      type: DataTypes.STRING,
      allowNull: false
    },
    dateAllowNullTrue: {
      type: DataTypes.DATE,
      allowNull: true
    },
    defaultValueBoolean: {
      type: DataTypes.BOOLEAN,
      allowNull: true,
      defaultValue: '1'
    },
    createdAt: {
      type: DataTypes.DATE,
      allowNull: false
    },
    updatedAt: {
      type: DataTypes.DATE,
      allowNull: false
    }
  }, {
    tableName: 'Users',
    freezeTableName: true
  });
};

Which makes it easy for you to simply Sequelize.import it.

For the -c, --config option the following JSON/configuration parameters are defined by Sequelize's options flag within the constructor. For more info:

https://sequelize.readthedocs.org/en/latest/api/sequelize/

var SequelizeAuto = require('sequelize-auto')
var auto = new SequelizeAuto('database', 'user', 'pass');
 
auto.run(function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
 
  console.log(auto.tables); // table list 
  console.log(auto.foreignKeys); // foreign key list 
});

You must setup a database called sequelize_auto_test first, edit the test/config.js file accordingly, and then enter in any of the following:

# for all
npm run test

# mysql only
npm run test-mysql

# postgres only
npm run test-postgres

# postgres native only
npm run test-postgres-native

# sqlite only
npm run test-sqlite
