I am creating a book app, where I want my Django project to have 3 or 4 books information in the data model whenever someone runs my app from scratch when cloning the app from my GitHub repo.
Different ways to do this:
Load everything in a sqlite database and include the database in your repo.
Create a custom migration that loads data into the database
Create fixtures that can be loaded using loaddata.
There are different benefits for each of these approaches. You might want to think about what you want the actual end result to look like from the user’s perspective.
look up the following:
for (non working) example:
from django.core.management import call_command fixtures = [ 'book.json', 'author.json' ] for fixture in fixtures: call_command('loaddata', fixture)
