Generate database structure from entities

This package implements bridge for automatically call Doctrine commands.

For example you can simple call:

php www/index.php o:s:u -f --dump-sql

Command o:s:u means orm:schema-tool:update.

  • -f is flush for execute changes SQL,
  • --dump-sql render list of SQL commands what will be executed.

If everything works fine, commands create table core__database_slow_query which is defined in this package and ready for logging slow queries.

Best performance

When Doctrine is used poorly, it can be unnecessarily slow.

More details (Czech language):

This package use best-practices to performance increase. Set automatically autoGenerateProxyClasses to false, ProxyClasses will be generated when Doctrine needs.

For maximal performance is best save your generated meta data about entities to Redis:


For unique record (entity) identification package defines trait UuidIdentifier with defined all basic best-practice configuration for your entity. ID will be generated automatically.

For better experience please insert two traits to all entities in project:



namespace Baraja\Doctrine\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;
use Nette\SmartObject;
use Baraja\Doctrine\UUID\UuidIdentifier;

 * @ORM\Entity()
class DatabaseEntity

	use UuidIdentifier; // <--- UUID trait for entity identifier.
	use SmartObject;    // <--- Strict class for better experience.

UUID will be generated automatically in PHP.
