Liquibase vs PostgREST: What are the differences?

Developers describe Liquibase as "Source control for your database". Developers store database changes in text-based files on their local development machines and apply them to their local databases. Changelog files can be be arbitrarily nested for better management. On the other hand, PostgREST is detailed as "Automatic REST API for Any Postgres Database". PostgREST serves a fully RESTful API from any existing PostgreSQL database. It provides a cleaner, more standards-compliant, faster API than you are likely to write from scratch.

Liquibase and PostgREST can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.

Liquibase and PostgREST are both open source tools. It seems that PostgREST with 12.5K GitHub stars and 585 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Liquibase with 1.78K GitHub stars and 1.09K GitHub forks.

What is Liquibase?

Liquibase is a leading open-source tool for database schema change management. Liquibase helps teams track, version, and deploy database schema and logic changes so they can automate their database code process with their app code process.

      Flyway vs Liquibase #Migration #Backwards-compatible

      We were looking for a tool to help us integrating the migration scripts as part of our Deployment. At first sight both tools look very alike, are well integrated with Spring, have a fairly frequent development activity and short release cycles.

      Liquibase puts a lot of emphasis on independence with the DB, allowing you to create the scripts on formats like JSON and YML, abstracting away from SQL, which it's also supported. Since we only work with one DB type across services we wouldn't take much advantage of this feature.

      Flyway on the other hand has the advantage on being actively working on the integration with PostgreSQL 11, for it's upcoming version 6. Provides a more extensive set of properties that allow us to define what's allowed on what's not on each different environment.

      Instead of looking for a tool that will allow us to rollback our DB changes automatically, we decided to implement backwards-compatible DB changes, for example adding a new column instead of renaming an existing one, postponing the deletion of the deprecated column until the release has been successfully installed.
