This lets you load global fixtures from a directory you set as FIXTURES_ROOT in your settings.py.

For example, setting FIXTURES_ROOT to /path/to/myproject/fixtures/

I tend to like to keep fixtures that should be loaded when a new instance of a site is deployed, but not auto-loaded (so they won't rewrite any data that comes after), in a project-level fixtures directory like this.

Sometimes these fixtures can be useful in your test suites, so this is a convenient way to load them.

Usage:

load_global_fixtures('sites.json', 'contacts.json') load_global_fixtures('sites.json', 'contacts.json', fixtures_root='/some/other/path', verbosity=1)

import os

from django.core import management
from django.conf import settings


def load_global_fixtures(*fixtures, **opts):
    options = dict(fixtures_root=settings.FIXTURES_ROOT, verbosity=0)
    options.update(opts)

    for fixture in fixtures:
        management.call_command('loaddata',
                os.path.join(options['fixtures_root'], fixture),
                verbosity=options['verbosity'])
