Version Control Features
Unlike other relational databases, Dolt has multiple branches and stores all data in a commit graph, like git. This makes it possible to efficiently diff any two commits, as well as merge one branch into another. All the git-like version control functionality available on the Dolt CLI is available in the SQL server as well, exposed as system tables, system variables, functions, and stored procedures.
- Stored procedures documents all the stored procedures that implement version control operations such as
- Functions documents Dolt-provided functions that aren't part of standard MySQL, including table functions that produce diffs of any table at two points in its history.
- System tables describes the system tables that provide read access to version control information, such as branches, commit log, diffs, and conflicts.
- System variables documents all the Dolt-provided system variables that expose and control various aspects of Dolt's behavior.
