In order to initialize a new project I need to create a hundred instances of a Django model (for example a hundred authors). I hesitate to use a data migration to apply this initial data creation on our different platforms.
However, I don’t know if it’s a good practice to create these instances with migrations because I’ll have to keep them “forever” in my application’s migrations folder.
Perhaps it would be better to create a Django command to apply “by hand” and then remove it from the git repo later?
Thanks for your advice and have a nice day.
