            How can I rescue from Postgresql's COPY command when copying a large CSV file?
            Asked 2022-Jan-11 at 16:30

            I have a feature where I am attempting to copy a very large CSV file into my database. I am using the pg gem to do so very quickly as explained in this article here POSTGRESQL COPY.

            In my schema.rb, I have unique constraints on a model so there are times during the upload process, I'll encounter a PG::UniqueViolation constraint error when attempting to import a file.

            What I need to do is I need to be able to capture this error and once captured, write some code that will log the error and the message along with some other details. The problem I am experiencing is that I am unable to currently capture the exception of writing the data into the file. Below is the following pseudo code:



            Answered 2022-Jan-11 at 16:30

            COPY is a single statement and can only apply atomically - even if you are streaming in the data in chunks. By the time you catch the exception, the COPY statement has been aborted, none of the rows prior to the violation occurring will be queryable, and the COPY cannot be resumed. In a case where you have, say, 10 rows, and a single row causes a violation, the only way of getting those other 9 rows present is with an INSERT or a COPY that does not include the problematic row. In practice, this means using single-row inserts, possibly with savepoints so you don't have to do a transaction-per-row.

            Another approach you may want to consider is to COPY into a table with no constraints, use regular DML to duplicate non-violating rows into the real data, and then drop/truncate the table you used for the import.

            But fundamentally, a "resumable, violation-tolerant COPY" just isn't a thing; the statement is the finest-grained level at which an operation can succeed or fail in PG, and COPY is still just one statement.



            how to fix "invalid instruction" error when running node.js in Docker, with sharp.js lib
            Asked 2021-Dec-28 at 23:35

            When running node.js in Docker, with sharp.js lib I am getting "invalid instruction" error and it exits with code 1.

            This is likely related to "libvips" used by sharp.js, that requires C compiler. I tried using various base Docker images, and so far all get same error. Any suggestion would be helpful.

            Here is minimum reproducible set:

            When const sharp = require("sharp"); is commented out it works.

            When it is included, getting this error Illegal instruction




            Answered 2021-Dec-28 at 23:35

            This issue is related to CPU instructions used by current version sharp.js lib that are not supported by some older processors. Resolved by setting exact older version of sharp.js lib, based on this useful answer here:

            How do I write special characters to csv file in node with fast-csv
            Asked 2021-Nov-17 at 16:43

            I have a list that contains German characters and I write to csv file with fast-csv and gives me different characters.



            Answered 2021-Nov-17 at 16:43

            This is the Excel issue with guessing a CSV encoding. Just indicate the option writeBOM equals to true, that way Excel can guess that the encoding is UTF-8.
            The most reliable way is to write to XLSX-file directly to avoid such encoding issues.



            Unable to send data to response after pipeline failed

            By the time the catch block is reached, the socket of the res object has already been destroyed by the pipeline. A pipeline "forwards errors" and destroys the destination if an error occurs in the source or along the intermediate transformations.

            Try the following:

            Answered 2021-Jul-01 at 15:28

            It seems you are getting the same id, because all models in Sequelize are "prepared" once, and your function uuidv4() runs only once. Thus for every row you insert into the DB it will have the same uuid. You could try mitigating it like this:

            According to the docs here:, the first parameter to .write is the data rows that you want to write, but you have the options as the first parameter.

            How to identify different input schemas with FastCSV?
            Asked 2021-Jun-25 at 09:29

            The following code works fine with the "Winner" type. The tech is typescript with node streams.

            Sometimes someone uploads a winner-2 type though. I'd like to look at the header and change format type based on the header.

            I could possibly

            • write a function that reads the header and returns the stream based on 'parse'. This is part of a class, so I could set the type. It would take a row and return one.
            • make the specification of Winner|Winner2 and see what happens. Look at the result in transform
            • make an uber winner interface and pull out the values that are set.

            I'm planning on rewriting the headers as there are inconsistencies.

            Answered 2021-Jun-25 at 09:29

            I rewrote the headers in a map function to take schema a and schema b and turn them into the target schema



            Deploying NodeRED Docker image to Heroku fails, but local build is error free

            We are trying to push a Docker image based on NodeRED to Heroku. Local build and test runs like a charm, but when we deploy it to Heroku, the Docker image build fails. Our docker file is quite simple:



            Answered 2021-May-24 at 08:54

            First up, copying settings.js to /usr/app/node-red/.node-red will do nothing as it will be ignored. The usrDir for the Node-RED Docker container is /data so the settings.js needs to be copied to there.

            Second, to install extra nodes add them to the package.json in /data not /usr/src/node-red. Then run npm install ... in the /data directory, this will install the nodes into /data/node_modules.

            If you want to remove any of the core nodes then you need to included their filenames in the nodesExcludes key in the settings.js as follows:
