Loading one fixture with an argument without extension (yml,csv)

Reported by netbe | September 26th, 2010 @ 03:05 PM


I think the error message I got when trying to load the fixture for my articles table was misleading, because I gave the name of the table and not the name of the file (extension included). Rails should try to append the extension, and looking at the error message it trunks the name of the file.

rake db:fixtures:load FIXTURES=articles
(in /Users/netbe/code/sample)
rake aborted!
Could not find /Users/netbe/code/sample/test/fixtures/arti.yml or /Users/netbe/code/sample/test/fixtures/arti.csv

    • Tag set to rake tasks, fixtures, load

    Adding my patch for this issue, if anyone can check if it's ok.

    PS: that's my first contribution, hoping I'm doing it right.

    I think if you would remove FIXTURES=fixture_file_name then you would have to rewrite the description of the task too. I don't understand why the File.basename(filename, ".*") has been replaced with this regexp that always removes the last 4 letters.

    What I meant was that now with 3.0 the code expects FIXTURES to be FIXTURES=filename.csv,another.yml instead of FIXTURES=filename,another. I'd prefer if it works with both.
