Jifty::Bootstrap(3) Insert initial data into your database


"Jifty::Bootstrap" is an abstract base class for your application's bootstrapping. Use it to set up initial data in your database when your application is first installed.


 package MyApp::Bootstrap;
 use base 'Jifty::Bootstrap';
 sub run {
     my $user = MyApp::CurrentUser->new( _bootstrap => 1);
     my $modelclass = MyApp::Model::Thingy->new(current_user => $user);
     $modelclass->create( name => 'Widget');


"run" is the workhorse method for the Bootstrap class. This takes care of setting up internal data structures and initializing things in an application-dependent manner.
