active-dump - dump and restore activerecord from/to yaml

active-dump provides 3 rake tasks that allow you to dump and restore activerecord data from/to yaml:

  • rake db:data:dump creates a yaml dump
  • rake db:data:restore restores a yaml dump
  • rake db:data:delete deletes all records in database
  • rake db:data:fix_seqs fixes (postgresql) sequences

NB: active-dump does not take migrations (or validations etc.) into account -- it dumps and restores raw data from the ActiveRecord models -- so make sure your migrations are in sync.

When using rails, add this to your Gemfile:

gem 'active-dump', require: 'active-dump/rails'

You can use these environment variables to configure active-dump:

  • RAILS_ENV: the environment
  • FILE: the file to dump to/restore from (defaults to db/data.yml)
  • MODELS: the models to dump (defaults to all models)
  • DELETE: delete records with same id before restore (defaults to false)
  • VERBOSE: print info/sql (defaults to false)
  • DRYRUN: don't do anything (defaults to false, implies VERBOSE)

Configuration files:

  • config/active-dump.yml: set defaults
  • config/database.yml: database connection
