Ghost::Seeder

Seed your ghost website with initial data in a scalable way.

Why do we want to seed ghost? (blog post)

Gem Version

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ghost-seeder'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Usage

  1. Add your DB adapter to your own Gemfile

example: https://github.com/prendho/webpage/blob/master/Gemfile#L5-L11

(at the moment we're using SQLite for dev environments and PostgreSQL for production environments)

  1. Add some seed data (simple YML files)

example: https://github.com/prendho/webpage/tree/master/config/seed/fixtures

These files will be parsed and DB records will be created for the models specified in the files

  1. Require (and run) our rake tasks

example: https://github.com/prendho/webpage/blob/master/Rakefile

$ rake db:seed

and use WIPE_DB env variable within the task if you want to first wipe the tables. Useful when the seeds are modified and you want to recreate everything from scratch - will also help you detect inconsistences

$ rake db:seed WIPE_DB=true

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
