PostgreSQL extension that implements non-Standard Time-based K-sorted, Lexicographically Unique Identifiers.

The inspiration to implement this PostgreSQL extension came from this github gist (PT-BR) that explains the differences between the usage of UUID and INT/BIGINT datatypes in RDBMS. This great material was written and is maintained by my friend Rafael Ponte.

Supported PostgreSQL versions

The aim of the project is support as many community-supported major versions of Postgres as possible. Currently, the following versions of PostgreSQL are supported:

10, 11, 12, 13 and master (pre-14).

Currently supported Unique Identifiers

Installation

$ git clone https://github.com/fabriziomello/unique_id.git
$ cd unique_id
# Make sure your path includes the bin directory that contains the correct `pg_config`
$ PATH=/path/to/pg/bin:$PATH
$ USE_PGXS=1 make
$ USE_PGXS=1 make install

Tests

$ USE_PGXS=1 make installcheck

Examples

fabrizio=# CREATE EXTENSION unique_id;
CREATE EXTENSION
fabrizio=# \dx unique_id
                                     List of installed extensions
