What are Python dumps?¶
A database dump is an image of the data in a database which you can
use e.g. to backup and restore your data. While Django's
dumpdata command lets you make database dumps in json and
xml format, Lino extends this by letting you make a database dump in
Python format. This is what we call a Python dump.
Another important thing is that you can use such a backup for data migrations.
