sqldump-to

Build Status

This stdin stream compatible command line tool takes a SQL dump stream and converts it to newline delimited JSON. In the future this module may support other output formats and have additional features (with your help).

  • Convert SQL dump to newline delimited JSON for import to BigQuery or other tools.
  • Output JSON schema to file. Request export format
  • Stream-based processor makes efficient use of resources (low memory/disk requirements).
  • Use multiple worker processes to increase performance/conversion speed.
  • stdin/stdout compatible.
  • Supports MySQL and MariaDB SQL dumpfiles and schema. Request dump format

Get Started

Installation

npm install -g sqldump-to

Usage

To use, simply pipe a MySQL compatible database dump to the tool. The schema will be read and the output will be newline delimited JSON, with object keys matching the column names of your tables.

Examples

# Output from dump file to newline delimited JSON on stdout 
cat tablename.sql | sqldump-to
# Dump table directly using mysqldump to JSON file 
mysqldump -u user -psecret dbname tablename | sqldump-to > tablename.json
# Dump entire database directly using mysqldump to JSON files in output dir 
mysqldump -u user -psecret dbname | sqldump-to -d ./output
# Track progress from gzipped dump to newline delimited JSON to a file 
pv tablename.sql.gz | gunzip -c | sqldump-to > tablename.json
# Output to a specific directory from a download stream 
curl http://dumps.mydumps.com/tablename.sql.gz | gunzip -c | sqldump-to -d ./output
# Output to gzipped json file with a separate schema file from a download stream 
curl http://dumps.mydumps.com/tablename.sql.gz | gunzip -c | sqldump-to -s | gzip -9 > tablename.json.gz

Flags

--dir-output=<path>, -d

Output to file in a specific directory. Filename will be {tablename}.json. Selecting this option will disable writing to stdout in favour of write to disk.

# Output newline delimited JSON to ./output/tablename.json 
cat tablename.sql | sqldump-to -d ./output

--write-workers=<number of workers>, -w

Adds extra write workers and splits the output into separate files. Only works when writing to disk (ie. when --dir-output given).

You probably want to experiment with different values to optimize the speed of processing. Filenames will be {tablename}_0.json, {tablename}_1.json, etc.

# Use 2 workers to output ./output/tablename_0.json and ./output/tablename_1.json 
cat tablename.sql | sqldump-to -d ./output -w 2

--schema, -s

Output the detected schema as JSON to a file. Filename will be {tablename}_schema.json.

If output-dir is not set, the schema file will be written to current directory. Otherwise will be written to the directory specified in output-dir.

# Output to stdout 
# Write embedded schema to ./tablename_schema.json 
cat tablename.sql | sqldump-to -s
# Output to ./output/tablename.json 
# Write Standard SQL schema to ./output/tablename_schema.json 
cat tablename.sql | sqldump-to -d ./output -s standard

--input=<dumpfile>, -i

Specify a filename instead of piping to stdin.

# Output newline delimited JSON to ./output/tablename.json 
sqldump-to -i tablename.sql -d ./output
