Auto document databases.

Our review

What we like

Single binary outputs Markdown documentation of your whole database (PG, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite, BigQuery, & others) with one command. Configurable output format (Markdown, DOT, Mermaid, JSON, even Excel). Can diagram relationships. Includes linting function e.g. require comments. Can diff actual vs documented.

What we don't like

It’s a documentation tool, not for migrations or actually creating the tables from scratch from the docs. Limited support for stored procedures and functions.
