Maitaining an RDBMS for Your Web Service
Since this is meant to be a light course, for now please copy the
dockersql directories from here, here, and here, respectively. The general idea is that we'll create
.sql files that can be used manually (or with a mgiration tool) to create migrations and seeds that we can easily manage. We also have
dockersql for the docker-compose sql initialization.
For more in-depth docs and reference, please check out migrate which is the tool that our migrations will be compatible with! Note that we will refrain from using/discussing the tool itself in this course.
The following sections will assume that you have copied (and hopefully reviewed!) the
/dockersql directories from the GitHub repo, but have not yet executed them anywhere.
