Migration generator for sequelize.
This package provides one tool:
  • makemigration - tool for create new migrations


npm install sequelize-auto-migrations-ng


  • Init sequelize, with sequelize-cli, using sequelize init
  • Create your models
  • Create initial migration - run:

node ./node_modules/sequelize-auto-migrations/bin/makemigration --name <migration name>
  • Change models and run it again, the migration file will be modified, it won't create a new one until you actually execute the migration.

You can change this behavior using -k option and a different name for the migration.
  • To preview new migration, without writing any changes, you can run:

node ./node_modules/sequelize-auto-migrations/bin/makemigration --preview
makemigration tool creates a table, SequelizeMetaMigrations in your database, that is used to calculate difference to the next migration. Do not remove it!

Executing migrations

  • Use standard sequelize-cli
sequelize db:migrate
  • To start from a revision, use --from <name>

Reverting migrations

  • Use standard sequelize-cli
sequelize db:migrate:undo
For more information, use makemigration --help, sequelize --help db:migrate


  • Migration action sorting procedure need some fixes. When many foreign keys in tables, there is a bug with action order. For now, please check it manually (--preview option)
  • Need to check (and maybe fix) field types: BLOB, RANGE, GEOMETRY, GEOGRAPHY
  • This module has been tested with postgresql (I use it with my projects). Test with mysql and sqlite.
