Preparing the database

The next step is to create and prepare the database. Thankfully, DEV is a Rails application, so this is relatively easy.

We can use Rails to create our database, load the schema, and add some seed data:

1
rails db:setup

db:setup actually runs the following rake commands in order so alternatively, you could run each of these to produce the same result:

1
2
3
rails db:create
rails db:schema:load
rails db:seed
