Checking the migration status with golang-migrate

If you're using golang-migrate to perform your database migrations, you may wonder how to check what the current state of your migrations is.

I recently found myself doing the same, but finding an absence of anything explicitly documenting this, so thought I'd write it as a form of blogumentation.

When running the version subcommand:

# for migrate v4.15.2
migrate -database "$DATABASE_URL" -path db/migrations version

We then receive the timestamp of the current migration state.

For instance, if we have the two migrations:


The version subcommand reporting a 1481574547 would indicate that we have not yet applied 1481840000_alter_users_table.
