You want to seed your database.
You've already written your database seeds and now you want to tell Laravel to seed the database.
php artisan db:seed command.
$ php artisan db:seed
If you're using a different class than default for the root seeder, you can use the
$ php artisan db:seed --class=MyDatabaseSeeder
Seeding is usually done for testing.
It's a great way to generate a standard set of records on your development machine.
