YamlDb::Anonymizer

Dumps anonymized database contents to a YAML file. This is useful if you want to develop Rails applications with near-live data from your server. Based on yaml_db.

(c) 2012 by Thomas Hollstegge

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'yaml_db_anonymizer'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install yaml_db_anonymizer

Usage

  • Specify the database fields to anonymize, e.g. in config/initializers/yaml_db_anonymizer.rb:
YamlDb::Anonymizer.define do
  table :users
    remove :encrypted_password
    replace :name, with: 'John Doe'
    replace :phone, with: ->(phone) { phone.to_s[0..-3] + '***' }
  end

  table :logs do
    truncate
  end
end
  • Run rake db:data:dump_anonymized on your server. This creates an anonymized dump in db/data.yml

  • Copy db/data.yml to your local machine

  • Run rake db:data:load on your local machine.

Todo

  • Provide capistrano integration
