Version 2.1.0


  • Deprecations removed

  • Rails 3.1 support added, Rails 3.0 support removed (please use 2.0.X line with 3.0)

Version 2.0.1

Bug fixes:

  • Update the primary key sequence in PostgreSQL tables after seeding data. This ensures that id conflicts do not occur when records are subsequently added to the table.

  • Raise ActiveRecord::RecordNotSaved if any of the saves fail (but they won't fail due to validation since saves are done without validation, so this guards against callbacks failing etc.)

Version 2.0.0


  • Depends only on Active Record, not the whole of Rails

  • The Model.seed_many syntax is now supported by Model.seed, and Model.seed_many is deprecated

  • Model.seed supports adding multiple records without an explicit array argument. I.e. the following are equivalent:

      { :name => "Jon" },
      { :name => "Emily" }
      { :name => "Jon" },
      { :name => "Emily }
  • A side-effect of the above is another option for single seeds:

    Model.seed(:name => "Jon")
  • The SEED option to rake db:seed_fu is deprecated, and replaced by FILTER which works the same way.

  • Added SeedFu.quiet boolean option, set to true if you don't want any output from Seed Fu.

  • Added SeedFu.fixture_paths. Set to an array of paths to look for seed files in. Defaults to ["db/fixtures"] in general, or ["#{Rails.root}/db/fixtures", "#{Rails.root}/db/fixtures/#{Rails.env}"] when Seed Fu is installed as a Rails plugin.

  • Added SeedFu.seed method which is basically a method equivalent of running rake db:seed_fu (the rake task now just basically called SeedFu.seed)

  • Simplified and changed the SeedFu::Writer API, see docs for details

Bug fixes:

  • Fix Rails 3 deprecation warnings and make seed-fu fully compatible with being installed as a gem
