Dynamic Date in Rails Fixture

While I was happily creating a fixture to test my newly created Article model, I found out that the <%= %> that I used in the fixture was dumping nil’s into the db. ;-(

That was suppose to work, at least long time ago… I still recall reading the first Rails book… The rails api didn’t say much about the dates in dynamic fixtures…

Well, let’s be a little skeptical, and say…“%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S”).

Ha! It worked!

But it’s a kinda too long…

Hum… what else does google has to offer?

There was a ticket open with the same issue: in a fixture return nil. Guess I am not the first ;-)

<%= %>

There, this is much prettier ;-)

Oh, here is a bonus link for more Dynamic Fixture stuff!
