PostgreSQL Provider for Vapor

Adds PostgreSQL support to the Vapor web framework.

Prerequisites

The PostgreSQL C driver must be installed in order to use this package.
Follow the README of the cpostgresql repo to get started.

Setup

Note that the process is different for Swift 3 and 4.

  1. Add the dependency to project

    • Swift 3: add to Package.swift package dependencies
      .Package(url: "https://github.com/vapor-community/postgresql-provider.git", majorVersion: 2, minor: 1)
      
    • Swift 4: add to Package.swift package and target dependencies
      .package(url: "https://github.com/vapor-community/postgresql-provider.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "2.1.0"))
      // ...
      .target(name: "App", dependencies: ["Vapor", "FluentProvider", "PostgreSQLProvider"], ...)
      
  2. Fetch dependencies and regenerate the Xcode project

    vapor update
    

Usage

import Vapor
import PostgreSQLProvider

let config = try Config()
try config.addProvider(PostgreSQLProvider.Provider.self)

let drop = try Droplet(config)

Configure Fluent

Once the provider is added to your Droplet, you can configure Fluent to use the PostgreSQL driver.

Config/fluent.json

  "driver": "postgresql"

Configure PostgreSQL

Basic

Here is an example of a simple PostgreSQL configuration file.

Config/secrets/postgresql.json

{
    "hostname": "127.0.0.1",
    "user": "postgres",
    "password": "hello",
    "database": "test",
    "port": 5432
}

Alternatively, you can set a url with the configuration parameters.

Config/secrets/postgresql.json

{
    "url": "psql://user:pass@hostname:5432/database"
}

Read Replicas

Read replicas can be supplied by passing a single master hostname and an array of readReplicas hostnames.

Config/secrets/postgresql.json

{
    "master": "master.postgresql.foo.com",
    "readReplicas": ["read01.postgresql.foo.com", "read02.postgresql.foo.com"],
    "user": "postgres",
    "password": "hello",
    "database": "test",
    "port": 5432
}

Driver

You can get access to the PostgreSQL Driver on the droplet.

import Vapor
import PostgreSQLProvider

let postgresqlDriver = try drop.postgresql()
