## Installation

1) Add `orangehill/iseed` to your composer file.

#### Laravel 5
For Laravel 5 installation edit your project's `composer.json` file to require `orangehill/iseed`.

"require": {
"orangehill/iseed": "dev-master"
}
### 1. Require with [Composer](https://getcomposer.org/)
```sh
composer require orangehill/iseed
```

#### Laravel 5 versions less than 5.3.8
For Laravel 5 versions that are less than 5.3.8 edit your project's `composer.json` file to require `2.2` version:
**Laravel 5.3.7 and below** or **Laravel 4** need specific version

"require": {
"orangehill/iseed": "2.2"
}
```sh
composer require orangehill/iseed:2.2 # Laravel 5.3.7 and below
composer require orangehill/iseed:1.1 # Laravel 4
```

#### Laravel 4
If you wish to install it on Laravel 4 you should require `1.1` version:
### 2. Add Service Provider (Laravel 5.4 and below)

"require": {
"orangehill/iseed": "1.1"
}
Latest Laravel versions have auto dicovery and automatically add service provider - if you're using 5.4.x and below, remember to add it to `providers` array at `/app/config/app.php`:

2) Update Composer from the CLI:
```
composer update
```
#### Laravel 5 versions less than 5.5
3) Add the service provider by opening a `app/config/app.php` file, and adding a new item to the `providers` array.
```

This command will also update `/database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php` (`/app/database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php` for Laravel 4) to include a call to this newly generated seed class.

If you wish you can define custom iSeed template in which all the calls will be placed. You can do this by using `#iseed_start` and `#iseed_end` templates anywhere within `/database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php` (`/app/database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php` for Laravel 4), for example:

<?php
```php
<?php
// File: /database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php
class DatabaseSeeder extends Seeder {
// File: /database/seeds/DatabaseSeeder.php
class DatabaseSeeder extends Seeder {
/**
* Run the database seeds.
*
* @return void
*/
public function run()
{
Eloquent::unguard();
/**
* Run the database seeds.
*
* @return void
*/
public function run()
{
Eloquent::unguard();
if(App::environment() == "local")
{
throw new \Exception('Only run this from production');
}
if(App::environment() == "local")
{
throw new \Exception('Only run this from production');
}
#iseed_start
#iseed_start
// here all the calls for newly generated seeds will be stored.
// here all the calls for newly generated seeds will be stored.
#iseed_end
}
#iseed_end
}
}
}
```

Alternatively you can run Iseed from the command line using Artisan, e.g. `php artisan iseed users`. For generation of multiple seed files comma separated list of table names should be send as an argument for command, e.g. `php artisan iseed users,posts,groups`.

Please note that some users encountered a problem with large DB table exports ([error when seeding from table with many records](https://github.com/orangehill/iseed/issues/4)). The issue was solved by splitting input data into smaller chunks of elements per insert statement. As you may need to change the chunk size value in some extreme cases where DB table has a large number of columns, the chunk size is configurable in iSeed's `config.php` file:

'chunk_size' => 500 // Maximum number of rows per insert statement
