How to backup ActiveRecord model data to YAML with ar_fixtures

Tagged fixtures, backup, activerecord, rails, yaml  Languages ruby

First install the plugin:

script/plugin install http://github.com/mileszs/ar_fixtures/commits/master

Then dump data for all models with:

rake db:data:dump:all

There's a task for loading the data into the database, see rake -T for more information.

You can also do this without a plugin by using ActiveSupport::JSON and File.write to seed your database.
