A data seeder for models for Django.

Project description

This app provides a simple way of seeding data for your data models into your development or test database. This can be achieved through the Admin site, via a management command, or by writing your own scripts that use a seeder object.

It is often necessary to be able to seed large datasets, especially in complex projects, where having pre-loaded data can save time in the development lifecycle. Additionally, by allowing simple data seeding, you can more effectively conduct load tests or test complex edge case scnearios.


  • Django 2.2+
  • Python 3.6+


You can install data_seeder using pip

pip install django-data-seeder

Quick Start

  1. Add data_seeder to your INSTALLED_APPS in

  2. Seed data with the following command

    python seeddata [options] app.models.Model [app.models.Model2, ...]

    This will generate a single seed for each model provided.
