Quick start

  • install liquimigrate
  • add ‘liquimigrate’ to INSTALLED_APPS
  • configure LIQUIMIGRATE_CHANGELOG_FILES = { ‘default’: os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), “migrations”, “migrations.xml”) in settings }
  • ensure that you have java on your path, liquibase and java drivers are embedded into package


Just run ./ liquibase update or ./ liquibase -h

To learn how to use liquibase look at liquibase documentation:

Configuration settings

  • LIQUIMIGRATE_CHANGELOG_FILES - dictionary with paths to change log files f.e. ‘os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), “migrations”, “migrations.xml”)’ for every database connection you need to maintain using liquimigrate
  • old method is still supported: LIQUIMIGRATE_CHANGELOG_FILE - path to change log file f.e. ‘os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), “migrations”, “migrations.xml”)’
  • LIQUIMIGRATE_DATABASE - selected database - default ‘default’

How it works

Database settings are got from DATEBASES, from key ‘default’ or key configured in as LIQUIMIGRATE_DATABASE.

Changelog path are got from LIQUIMIGRATE_CHANGELOG_FILES or from command line (check -h).

Supported drivers:
  • postgresql
  • mysql
  • more in future


Whole command code is put in:
  • liquimigrate/management/commands/
  • java connectors are stored in liquimigrate/vendor/connectors
  • available drivers mapping is stored in liquimigrate/
  • mapping to create db url for drivers is stored in liquimigrate/management/commands/ in DB_DEFAULTS
