Rails - Build Test Environment DB From Migrations

This custom rake task builds the test environment database from the migrations rather than the schema dump of the development database. This is especially handy if you have application data inserted via your migrations that you don't want to duplicate in fixtures.

You should be able to stick this in a file called ".rake" and put it in your "tasks" directory.

To use as a plugin, create a directory in "vendor/plugins" and call it whatever you want. Inside, create a directory called "tasks". Place this code in a file there and call it whatever you want.


module Rake
  module TaskManager
    def redefine_task(task_class, args, &block)
      task_name, deps = resolve_args(args)
      task_name = task_class.scope_name(@scope, task_name)
      deps = [deps] unless deps.respond_to?(:to_ary)
      deps = deps.collect {|d| d.to_s }
      task = @tasks[task_name.to_s] = task_class.new(task_name, self)
      task.application = self
      task.add_comment(@last_comment)
      @last_comment = nil
      task.enhance(deps, &block)
      task
    end
  end
  class Task
    class << self
      def redefine_task(args, &block)
        Rake.application.redefine_task(self, args, &block)
      end
    end
  end
end

def redefine_task(args, &block)
  Rake::Task.redefine_task(args, &block)
end

namespace :db do
  namespace :test do

    desc 'Prepare the test database and migrate schema'
    redefine_task :prepare => :environment do
      Rake::Task['db:test:migrate_schema'].invoke
    end

    desc 'Use the migrations to create the test database'
    task :migrate_schema => 'db:test:purge' do
      ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(ActiveRecord::Base.configurations['test'])
      ActiveRecord::Migrator.migrate("db/migrate/")
    end
  
  end
end
