$NAME is a language-agnostic tool for managing your Postgres schema, designed to make downtime-free schema changes as easy as possible to develop and run.
$NAME improves database migration ergonomics in five major ways:
It stores previous versions of your schema in source control and auto-generates scaffolding for new migrations by "diffing" them with the current schema. This ensures that your production schema never drifts out of sync from the schema defined by your application.
It automates many recipes for doing tricky migrations like column renames "online," without requiring downtime or a synchronized application deploy. Naive methods of renaming a column require multiple application deploys and costly table rebuilds. $NAME's recipe doesn't require either.
