Sequelize save file/image to MySQL

Firstly, we define a Sequelize model for files/images with BLOB type as below:


const Image = sequelize.define('image', {

  ...
  data: {
    type: Sequelize.BLOB('long')
  }
});

To read/write data of file/image, we use fs.readFileSync('/path/to/file') and fs.writeFileSync('/path/to/file', image.data) functions of NodeJS file-system module.

Below segment code is used to store file/image to MySQL:


var fs = require('fs');

...

var imageData = fs.readFileSync('/path/to/file');

Image.create({
    ...
    data: imageData
}).then(image => {
    try{
        fs.writeFileSync('/path/to/file', image.data);              
    }catch(e){
        console.log(e);
    }
})

Practice

We build a NodeJS project as below structure:
