Native dbcrossbar schemas

dbcrossbar supports a native schema format that exactly represents all types supported by dbcrossbar. It can be used as follows:

--schema dbcrossbar-schema:my_table.json

For more details and example, see the chaper on portable table schemas.

Typical uses

This format is cumbersome to edit by hand, but it is fairly useful in a number of circumstances:

  • Specifying column types that can't be exactly represented by other schema formats.
  • Reading or editing schemas using scripts.
