Simple database management

Prerequisite

 

Instalation

$ gorilla plugin add db_manager

To uninstall:

$ gorilla plugin remove db_manager

 

How to use it.

This plugin is very useful to do maintenance basic tasks in your database. You can import, export, replace the database easily. If you need to make questions or a forward-thinking management, you can use the Adminer plugin.

Import

To import you have to pass the sql file with the queries you want to import. It doesn’t replace the actual tables and the data there’re in the database.

$ gorilla db import my-file.sql

 

Export

To export you have to pass the path in which you want GorillaJS to save the database copy.

$ gorilla db export my-file.sql

 

Replace

This command is the same than the import one but it eliminates all the actual database and later it imports the data we pass in the sql file.

$ gorilla db replace my-file.sql

For the moment it only works with containers which uses the MySQL engine. The last version will also work with PostgreSQL and MongoDB.

The NodeJS installer

The NodeJS template that comes as a default in GorillaJS uses the Express.js framework to start a server and return a response. This is optional, and once the application is running we can eliminate this server and use the application in any other way.

FAQ’s

Why do you need to free the port 80? Can you make your own installers? Can you use GorillaJS in a remote server?
