This package contains a lot of misc. functionality that might not fit into it's own package or that would best to get PR'ed into Vapor. Some examples of what this package contains:

Environment variables

Access environment variables by writing

env("my-key", "my-fallback-value")

Seeder commands

If you want to make your model seedable, you can conform it to Seedable and use SeederCommand to wrap your seedable model. This basically means that you can focus on how your model gets initialized when running your command, and save a little code on actually performing the database work.

Seeding multiple instances of your model will be added - feel free to PR.


This package contains a lot of convenience related to JWT, usernames and passwords which is used in JWTKeychain and Admin Panel.


Sugar contains a helper function for adding properties while excluding some specific ones. This makes it a bit more convenient if you want to only modify how a single one or a couple of fields gets prepared.

extension MyModel: Migration {
    static func prepare(on connection: MySQLConnection) -> Future<Void> {
        return MySQLDatabase.create(self, on: connection) { builder in
            try addProperties(to: builder, excluding: [\.title])
            builder.field(for: \.title, type: .varchar(191))
