I don't know if this is the right category but I thought I would share here and kindly ask the moderators to move it if necessary. I have created a couple of command line tools for NodeBB to implement the following functionality I missed out of the box:
- Batch edit category properties
- Dump database (any backend) to a JSON file
- Restore database (any backend) from a JSON file
Because dump/restore are backend-agnostic, they can be used for switching between the supported backend (redis, mongo, postgres). You have to perform a dump while your old backend is configured, then reconfigure NodeBB to your target backend and then restore the JSON dump.
If you think you might find it useful you can take a look at: https://github.com/sadaszewski/nodebb-tools
