PHP datatypes for databases


Build Status Latest Stable Version Code Climate Test Coverage


This library is used for datatype definitions, validation and sql statement generation. Each type (Mysql, Redshift, Snowflake, GenericStorage) also provides a base type mapping that can be used to map types between different storage providers.

Base Types

There are currently 7 base types: String, Date, Timestamp, Integer, Numeric, Float, and Boolean. Any type class that extends Keboola\Datatype\Definition\Common should provide a mapping for it's types to the above set. This will allow us to map data-types between storage providers.
