What is OracleToGit

OracleToGit is a simple tool for making comprehensible version controlled backups of your database in form of DDL queries.

To make the long story short, it is a demon script which exports your database DDL scripts in realtime and allows you to track changes in code of your triggers, tables, packages, fuctions, views, etc.

You will be able to see, who changed your code, when he did it and what exactly he has done. For example, that’s how it looks on bitbucket:

We don’t recommend installing this tool for production database – it may have some impact both on security and performance. However, this is very useful for developer database – you will never lose any cool code again!

Yeah, just in case – OracleToGit does not store any DML (data from tables). This ridiculously large task must be accomplished with expdp utility, rman, tape drives and etc. And – belive me – you just don’t need your DML in version control system.

Are you interested? Ready to give it a try? Let’s go to the installation guide!
