Has anyone got any tools/scripts etc. for getting the data dump into MySQL?

I have one :( But I'm not sure if I want to release my ugly code. – Ian Elliott Aug 13 '09 at 16:41

I've got a script and schema for mysql that you can use if you are interested. The load script requires Ruby. I also split a tags out into their own table.

I was wondering this is up to date with the latest data dump? – find-missing-semicolon Apr 17 '12 at 15:47

I know I have used your script in past but don't recall of this error: but I just recently tried and I am getting an error in badges.xml at <row Id="253861" UserId="74951" Name="Autobiographer" Date="2009-03-08T02:02:32.390" /> : Incorrect datetime value: '2009-03-08T02:02:32.390' for column 'created' at row 1 (Mysql::Error) – find-missing-semicolon Feb 8 '14 at 19:14

The following is a project that can import all of the latest dumps (as of August 2014) into any relational database that supports JPA/hibernate. It is written in Java, but can also be used from the command line. Prerequisites are Java 8 and Maven.
