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.
