Doctrine Data Fixtures Extension

This extension aims to provide a simple way to manage and execute the loading of data fixtures for the Doctrine ORM or ODM. You can write fixture classes by implementing the Doctrine\Common\DataFixtures\FixtureInterface interface:

namespace MyDataFixtures;

use Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager;
use Doctrine\Common\DataFixtures\FixtureInterface;

class LoadUserData implements FixtureInterface
    public function load($manager)
        $user = new User();


Now you can begin adding the fixtures to a loader instance:

use Doctrine\Common\DataFixtures\Loader;
use MyDataFixtures\LoadUserData;

$loader = new Loader();
$loader->addFixture(new LoadUserData);

You can load a set of fixtures from a directory as well:


You can get the added fixtures using the getFixtures() method:

$fixtures = $loader->getFixtures();

Now you can easily execute the fixtures:

use Doctrine\Common\DataFixtures\Executor\ORMExecutor;

$purger = new Purger();
$executor = new ORMExecutor($em, $purger);

If you want to append the fixtures instead of purging before loading then pass false to the 2nd argument of execute:

$executor->execute($loader->getFixtures(), true);
