Populating the development database


#1

Hey guys,

Is there an easy way for me to take my test fixtures and pop them
into my development database? I really don’t want to use the
interface to populate the database… it takes too much time.

Indeed… in one of our recent projects, Jeremy added this as a
development task:

lib/tasks/development.rake

desc ‘Load fixtures into the development database for convenience.’
task :development => [:environment] do
require ‘active_record/fixtures’
Fixtures.create_fixtures “#{RAILS_ROOT}/test/fixtures”,
%w( languages projects translations )
end

rake development.

Voila. :slight_smile:

And if it’s not clear, the languages, projects, and translations are
the fixtures that should be loaded into the development database.

end

rake development.

Voila. :slight_smile:

That’s nice, but there’s already rake load_fixtures for that :slight_smile:

Indeed so much has changed, and that task has a history dating back
to the first RailsDay.

I find variations on that theme to be useful for importing just
certain fixtures, however, such as country or language data that are
needed to initialize a system… it lets you take what you need.
