## Database
We use [``]. This file should be the *only* file
Before 1fe9553cc9 we used [``]. This file should be the *only* file
apart from our monolithic binary. All settings and keys should go in here.
Any read-only data resides in the binary file (possibly compressed).
Now, we use Gorm and support SQLite and PostgreSQL as backends.
We provide a migration binary in `cmd/rushlink-migrate-db/`. In environment
variables, the destination database is configured, and the binary itself
expects a few flags. Refer to the source for the exact flags.
