"SCV ready to go, sir!" -- some scv.

A set of thor scripts with most general tasks to administer Rails applications.


Into Gemfile:

gem 'scv', :group => 'development', :require => false


scv config

It's a common pattern, especially for open source projects not to keep development configuration files in version control, keeping their example versions instead. The most common is config/database.yml.example. While I'm going to support this pattern in future, I currently suggest another one, which is keeping all example configuration files in config/examples, which structure repeats config directory. For support of this pattern there is a setup:config script in this set. Run

scv config

to copy all example configuration files to their natural locations. You may use --force, --skip, --quiet and --pretend options as with usual Rails generators. If you append any of the file names with .tt it will be considered as template, evaluated and placed to the right place without .tt.

scv db

Pretty often you need to create a database, tune it's schema to current and load seeds after checking out a new application. I advice you to use a

scv db

for it. Available modificators are:

  • --drop or -d - drop database before creation. Defaults to false.
  • --no-seeds - don't run db:seed

The no- options are also available with --skip prefix as usual (e.g., --skip-test-clone)

scv populate

Again, pretty often you need to populate database with a test data, needed for development. I suggest a solution when near db/seeds.rb file you place db/populate.rb with the similar purpose and content, but containing data you'd like to insert to database for development. If you do so, you may use

scv populate

to clean the database, load seeds.rb and populate.rb without dropping the database. There is an option --no-truncate to prevent database cleanup, that is used from meta tasks like bootstrap or reset.

scv bootstrap

scv bootstrap should be used after initial checkout of application. It does scv config --force, then scv db --no-seed (because scv populate is expected to be run), and then, yeah, scv populate --no-truncate.

scv reset

In the meantime, scv reset should be used when you wish to reset your database. It does scv db --drop --no-seed, then scv populate --no-truncate. This command can also be executed by just running scv db.
