We use Prisma as our ORM. Prisma works by interpreting a schema file defined in
prisma/schema.prisma and using a generated client. Prisma generates a strongly-typed client based on the schema file. The client is generated at runtime and not checked into version control. See the prisma docs about this. This means that the prisma client needs to be generated as part of any deployment process. As noted in the prisma docs, the
prisma generate command is run as a postinstall hook when the prisma library is installed.
On deployment, the database needs to be migrated by running:
npx prisma migrate deploy. See below for useful docs on production migrations:
We use Sentry to capture errors, and we need to upload source maps to sentry and create a release in sentry. Currently this happens while building the docker image. Sentry automatically hooks into the
yarn build process and uploads source maps and creates a release. This requires having a
SENTRY_AUTH_TOKEN environment variable set to be picked up by the sentry-cli.
We handle this currently during docker builds via Github Actions. We pass in the
SENTRY_AUTH_TOKEN as an build-arg to Docker from a github secret. See
.github/docker-release.yml for that configuration.
This project uses superjson to automatically handle serialization issues, primarily with
BigInt, which we use for certain IDs.
