Best way to import data (fixture) auto import on install

Hi there… I have more them 20k record to auto import when I install the application… using fixture may works… but, how is the best way to do that? Create CSV, XLS ?


Hi, one way is to add a function to execute after install.
In order to do this you have to add a hook, for example:

after_install = "your_application.install.after_install"

And add a file:
your_application/setup/ with the function after_install, and add the .csv file in the same folder, for example:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from __future__ import unicode_literals
import csv
import os.path

def after_install():
    my_path = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__))
    path = os.path.join(my_path, "your_file.csv")
    with open(path, 'r') as csvfile:
        reader = csv.reader(csvfile, delimiter=str(';'))
        for idx, val in enumerate(reader):
            if idx==0:
                continue  # If csv have first row with headers
            # Do something with your data
            doc = frappe.new_doc('DocType')
   = val[0]
