Have you ever gone to test a specific or develop a feature, except it requires use of data that currently only exists in production?
Instead of going through a very time-consuming database dump and load process, you can use this gem instead.
It works by dumping certain tables you want into some yaml files in db/data. You can then easily load them into your database.
This works a an alternative to ludicast/yaml_db for some use cases.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And in config/initializers/db_sync.rb
DbSync.configure do |config| config.sync_tables = ["TABLE_NAME"] end
Run this to dump the tables you specified in the initializer to db/data
bundle exec rake db_sync:dump_data
Or run against a specific rails environment
bundle exec rake db_sync:dump_data RAILS_ENV=production
Run this to load the tables back in. WARNING: this overwrites the contents of this existing table.
bundle exec rake db_sync:load_data
