I do this to populate my ‘rights’ table…

require 'active_record/fixtures'
directory = File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), "test/fixtures")
Fixtures.create_fixtures(directory, "rights")

Hi Craig.
Wouldn’t “rake db:fixtures:load FIXTURES=rights” give you the same
result (with less typing)?

Best.

probably…I’m i the console anyway deleting the current contents of the
table and updating it.

Sorry gentlemen. I should be more precise in asking my questions. This
is very useful information. However, what I meant to ask is how do I
populate a class instance from the fixture data in Rails console without
going to the database. Is there a more direct way of doing that?
Thanks.
