A better, faster, stronger alternative for manage.py dumpdata

Project Description

django-dumpdb saves and restored the contents of the database in a simple database-independent format.

It is designed to be fast and memory efficient, and can handle a database of ANY size, in a reasonable time, with a fixed memory footprint.

Features

  • Stream-oriented file format.
  • Accesses the database directly, bypassing the ORM layer for better performance.
  • Uses server-side database cursors to preserve memory.
  • Can hanldle data with ForeignKey('self') and forward references.

Supported database backends

django-dumpdb uses server-side cursors and deferred foreign key checks, which is not supported by Django as of now. Therefore, it has to use some DB-specific code. The following database backends are currently supported:

  • postgresql_psycopg2
  • mysql
  • sqlite

Installation

Add django_dumpdb to your INSTALLED_APPS.

Usage

manage.py dumpdb > db.dump
manage.py restoredb < db.dump

Or even:

ssh remotehost /var/www/myproject/manage.py dumpdb | manage.py restoredb

django-dumpdb can also be used to migrate the data to another database (for example, from MySQL to PostgreSQL).
