We will create a seed file using the Nessie CLI
We now have a database with an empty
entry table, but we won't get far without
any data when we develop our application.
A seed file contains the code to add data to the database, and for Nessie, it
has a lot of similarities to the migration file. For starters, we can create a
seed file using Nessie. Run this command to generate a new seed file in your
If we now inspect the new file, we will see that it does not have a timestamp in
the filename. This is because it doesn't care about the order of seeding and
will run the files alphabetically usinglocaleCompare,
meaning that you can prefix files with
1_... to set a seed order (if you have
an idea of how to improve the ordering of seed files, feel free to join the
discussion on GitHub).
