Seed Fu Jump to Story

Seed Fu is a gem that hit version 2.2 a few months back. It can create seed data with constraints. If the constraints you determine are met, it will update matching records. You can also make sure that an existing record will not be updated after it’s initially created by using the seed_once method. And just like Seedbank it comes with selective rake tasks.
