Command line tooling for the migroose migration framework.

Get Started

You will need both migroose and the migroose-cli tool. Migroose should be installed in the project, while the cli tool should be installed globally.
npm install migroose
npm install -g migroose-cli

Now you can use the cli tool to generate a migration and run migrations.

Generate A Migration

Use the command line to generate a migration file.
migroose "some example migration"

This will produce a mongrations/##########-some-example-migration.js file where "#########" is a timestamp.
See the migroose docmentation for information on how to write a migroose migration script.

Connect Migroose To Your MongoDB Database

Before you can run you migrations, you need to provide a connection to your MongoDB database. This only has to be done once per project, but it must be done before the migrations can run.
Create a migroose.js file in your project folder, and have it export a connect function. This function receives one callback argument that you must call once your database connection has been established.
// my-project/migroose.js

var mongoose = require("mongoose");

module.exports = {

  // provide a connection to my mongodb instance
  connect: function(cb){

    var conn = "mongodb://localhost:27017/some-database";
    mongoose.connect(conn, function(err){
      if (err) { throw err; }

      // now that i'm connected, i can tell migroose to run


Having written this connector, you can now use the migroose command line to run your migrations.

Run Migrations

Once you have completed your migraiton script, you can run them with the command line.

Specifying no parameters will tell migroose to run all of the migration files found in the mongrations folder.
