Other Decks in Programming


  1. xedotnet.org Luca Del Puppo @puppo92 Prisma in the air

  2. Agenda •What is it? •Data Modeling • Client •Migration •Deploy

  3. www.delpuppo.net luca@delpuppo.net @puppo92 Luca Del Puppo Full-Stack developer @Flowing Ego

  4. Prisma is an open source next-generation ORM. (Node eco-system) •

    Prisma Client: Auto-generated and type-safe query builder for Node.js & TypeScript • Prisma Migrate: Migration system • Prisma Studio: GUI to view and edit data in your database What is it?
  5. • Thinking in objects instead of mapping relational data •

    Queries not classes to avoid complex model objects • Single source of truth for database and application models • Healthy constraints that prevent common pitfalls and antipatterns • An abstraction that makes the right thing easy ("pit of success") • Type-safe database queries that can be validated at compile time • Less boilerplate so developers can focus on the important parts of their app • Auto-completion in code editors instead of needing to look up documentation Why?
  6. Where it is positioned

  7. None
  8. • Create project (prisma/schema.prisma) • Generate Types • Generate Migrations

    • Apply Migrations • Create Db N.B. available using `npm install prisma` CLI
  9. npx prisma init --datasource-provider PostgreSQL Let’s start

  10. • PostgreSQL • MySQL • SQLite • Microsoft SQL Server

    • MongoDB (April 2022) • CockroachDB (Preview) Providers
  11. • One file (schema.prisma) ◦ Data sources: Specify the details

    of the data sources Prisma should connect to (e.g. a PostgreSQL database) ◦ Generators: Specifies what clients should be generated based on the data model (e.g. Prisma Client) ◦ Data model definition: Specifies your application models (the shape of the data per data source) and their relations • Syntax - PSL (Prisma Schema Language) Schema
  12. • Field Types • Primary Keys • Foreign Keys •

    Constraints • Table name N.B. more detail about providers in the officials docs Schema
  13. Convert schema to ts types npx prisma generate By default

    types are generated in the folder `node_modules/.prisma/client` Generate
  14. What does it generate? • Models ◦ Convert Table to

    Typescript Types • Query Models (type safe) ◦ Constraint to build where clause ◦ Constraint to build select ◦ Constraint to build insert/update/delete with relation Generate
  15. Prisma Client is an auto-generated and type-safe query builder that's

    tailored to your data. npm install @prisma/client Client
  16. Client

  17. Operations • create/createMany • update/updateMany • delete/deleteMany • findUnique/findMany/findFirst •

    aggregate • count • groupBy • upsert (create or update) One for each model Client
  18. Prisma Migrate is an imperative database schema migration tool that

    enables you to: • Keep your database schema in sync with your Prisma schema • Maintain existing data in your database Migration
  19. 1. Update your prisma schema 2. Run migration command `npx

    prisma migrate dev` a. It checks your db and your schema b. It creates a sql file to apply the changes 3. Happy code Migration - Workflow Development
  20. • MongoDb is not supported (use `prisma db push`) •

    Switch DB Provider is not supported Migration - Limitations
  21. Introspection

  22. Prisma exposes us a command for seeding the db •

    It runs on • prisma migrate dev • prisma migrate reset • manually • It can be written in typescript, go, sql… • ‘--skip-seed’ allows skipping Seeding
  23. The deploy exists only if you are using migrations `npx

    prisma migrate deploy` That command applies migrations in you database. N.B. Use a CI/CD flow for your deployment Deploy
  24. DEMO Demo

  25. Cons • Newby • Don’t manage multiple provider concurrency •

    Splitting schema not implemented out-of-the-box (prisma-aurora) Conclusion
  26. Pros • Wonderful developer experience • Type safe queries •

    Migrations • Custom queries • Active Community • Awesome documentation • Core team active in Github and Slack Conclusion
  27. My Series about Prisma https://dev.to/this-is-learning/series/15827
