I need a way to populate default data when a new account is created.
I've been using seed_fu with fixtures YAML files to populate the default data for my app but this isn't working on an individual basis.
Basically the account is created and I need it to add some services and testimonials using the new account id.
Any ideas on the best way to set this up?
I currently have an after_create: populate_defaults method
My question is how do I call the scritp to populate the data in the models and what does that script look like?
I currently have the following:
def populate_defaults add_defaults self.id end
Does anyone have a solution for this? I'd like to be able to call a file and load that data either with SQL or just activerecord create calls (creating about 9 records into different tables).
I am just unsure how to exactly load a file that will perform these actions. Where should I put the file? How do I reference it? Is it better to use SQL commands or ActiveRecord creates like the following:
Service.create( :title => "testing", :account_id => self.id, :active => 1, :body => "testing")
Any additional help is appreciated. Thank you.
