Deciding on order that seed files are run

Reported by Asfand Yar Qazi | June 11th, 2009 @ 02:13 AM


So I've got the typical set up of a model that belongs_to several others (i.e. has the foreign keys for the other models).

So there's y and z which don't need anything; but A requires and y_id and z_id.

in a.rb I'm trying to do:

record.y = Y.find_by_name('blah')
record.z = Z.find_by_name('blah')

It always loads up a.rb FIRST, when I want it loaded up after y and z. I tried renaming them to 10-y.rb, 20-z.rb and 30-a.rb hoping that would let me define the ordering - but it doesn't. Any ideas?
