Topic: Seeds File Cleanup Suggestions
Coming from a Java background and I'm still trying to get a handle on Ruby best practices. I'm almost certain there is a cleaner way to complete this functional (yet ugly) seed code. I'm trying to prevent a double entry in my database when I seed more than once. Any suggestions welcome!
# Create Roles ENGINEER = "Engineer" ADMIN = "Admin" begin @admin = Role.where("name = ?", ADMIN) rescue @admin = Role.create(:name => ADMIN) end begin @engineer = Role.where("name = ?", ENGINEER) rescue @engineer = Role.create(:name => ENGINEER) end # Create Testing Users @admin_user = User.new(:email => "email@example.com", :password => 'asdfasdf') @engineer_user = User.new(:email => "firstname.lastname@example.org", :password => 'asdfasdf') # Add Roles to users @admin_user.role = @admin @engineer_user.role = @engineer # Save the users with their role assignments @admin_user.save @engineer_user.save
