@directus/schema

Utility for extracting information about the database schema

Usage

The package is initialized by passing it an instance of Knex:

import knex from 'knex';
import schema from '@directus/schema';

const database = knex({
    client: 'mysql',
    connection: {
        host: '127.0.0.1',
        user: 'your_database_user',
        password: 'your_database_password',
        database: 'myapp_test',
        charset: 'utf8',
    },
});

const inspector = schema(database);

export default inspector;

Examples

import inspector from './inspector';

async function logTables() {
    const tables = await inspector.tables();
    console.log(tables);
}

API

Note: MySQL doesn't support the schema parameter, as schema and database are ambiguous in MySQL.

Note 2: Some database types might return slightly more information than others. See the type files for a specific overview what to expect from driver to driver.

Note 3: MSSQL doesn't support comment for either tables or columns

Tables

tables(): Promise<string[]>

Retrieve all tables in the current database.

await inspector.tables();
// => ['articles', 'images', 'reviews']

tableInfo(table?: string): Promise<Table | Table[]>

Retrieve the table info for the given table, or all tables if no table is specified

await inspector.tableInfo('articles');
// => {
//   name: 'articles',
//   schema: 'project',
//   comment: 'Informational blog posts'
// }

await inspector.tableInfo();
// => [
//   {
//     name: 'articles',
//     schema: 'project',
//     comment: 'Informational blog posts'
//   },
//   { ... },
//   { ... }
// ]

hasTable(table: string): Promise<boolean>

Check if a table exists in the current database.

await inspector.hasTable('articles');
// => true

Columns

columns(table?: string): Promise<{ table: string, column: string }[]>

Retrieve all columns in a given table, or all columns if no table is specified

await inspector.columns();
// => [
//   {
//     "table": "articles",
//     "column": "id"
//   },
//   {
//     "table": "articles",
//     "column": "title"
//   },
//   {
//     "table": "images",
//     "column": "id"
//   }
// ]

await inspector.columns('articles');
// => [
//   {
//     "table": "articles",
//     "column": "id"
//   },
//   {
//     "table": "articles",
//     "column": "title"
//   }
// ]

columnInfo(table?: string, column?: string): Promise<Column[] | Column>

Retrieve all columns from a given table. Returns all columns if table parameter is undefined.

await inspector.columnInfo('articles');
// => [
//   {
//     name: "id",
//     table: "articles",
//     type: "VARCHAR",
//     defaultValue: null,
//     maxLength: null,
//     isNullable: false,
//     isPrimaryKey: true,
//     hasAutoIncrement: true,
//     foreignKeyColumn: null,
//     foreignKeyTable: null,
//     comment: "Primary key for the articles collection"
//   },
//   { ... },
//   { ... }
// ]

await inspector.columnInfo('articles', 'id');
// => {
//   name: "id",
//   table: "articles",
//   type: "VARCHAR",
//   defaultValue: null,
//   maxLength: null,
//   isNullable: false,
//   isPrimaryKey: true,
//   hasAutoIncrement: true,
//   foreignKeyColumn: null,
//   foreignKeyTable: null,
//   comment: "Primary key for the articles collection"
// }

primary(table: string): Promise<string>

Retrieve the primary key column for a given table

await inspector.primary('articles');
// => "id"

Misc.

withSchema(schema: string): void

Not supported in MySQL

Set the schema to use. Note: this is set on the inspector instance and only has to be done once:

inspector.withSchema('my-schema');
