DB Reference

Used for creating a predefined set of model instances, similar to db:seed, but will not repopulate if entries already exist.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'db_reference'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install db_reference

Usage

Place references in 'db/reference/' References will be loaded in ascending order, so if an order is desired, prepend 000, 001, 002... etc to the filename.

Run with: rake reference:load

Example

The below example ensures that there are 6 locations existing in the database after running the 'rake reference:load'

db/schema.rb

create_table 'locations', :force => true do |t|
  t.string 'name', :null => false
end

db/reference/000_locations.rb

Location.update_or_create :id => 1, :name => 'Wellington City'
Location.update_or_create :id => 2, :name => 'Lower Hutt'
Location.update_or_create :id => 3, :name => 'Kapiti Coast'
Location.update_or_create :id => 4, :name => 'Porirua'
Location.update_or_create :id => 5, :name => 'Upper Hutt'
Location.update_or_create :id => 6, :name => 'Wairarapa'
