It’s nice to pre-populate terms, content or have the ability to only OCCASIONALLY run actions.

In the past, I’ve had to manually use special $_GET variables.

Not any more! Newly released today is a little library I’m calling Seeder. What it does is provide a simple interface for admins/super admins to fire a special hook. You can easily hook onto that action in order to perform your infrequent or expensive logic.

This could be anything such as pre-filling content, auto-creating terms, updating the database in a certain manner, talking to or updating an API, etc.

Check it out on github or packagist.

Extra special thanks to @joshnlevinson for his work on building the beginning of this and for coining the term of seeding. Thanks Josh!
