The following themes use this plugin:

Installation

Just install Rahman.Faker plugin and you can generate fake data in your pages, layout or partials.

Basic Usage

Here's the simple way to generate fake data with this plugin:

For example in page:

layout = "default"
==
<div class="container">
    <div class="page-header">
        <h2>I'm {{ fake.title }} {{ fake.name }}</h2>
    </div>
    <address>{{ fake.address }}</address>
    <p>I'm {{ fake.numberBetween(30, 50) }} years old. LOL</p>
    <p>
        Here's my photo <img src="{{ fake.imageUrl(200, 200, 'cats' ) }}" alt=""/> <br>
        whops! Just kidding! :D
        This's the real one ;) <br> <br>
        <img src="{{ fake.imageUrl(200, 200, 'people') }}" alt=""/>
    </p>
    <p>Let me tell you my story :D</p>
    <p>{{ fake.text(1500) }}</p>
</div>

Formatters

Each of the generator properties (like name, address, and lorem) are called "formatters". A faker generator has many of them, packaged in "providers". Here is a list of the bundled formatters in the default locale.

Faker\Provider\Base

randomDigitNotNull      // 5
randomNumber($nbDigits = NULL) // 79907610

numberBetween($min = 1000, $max = 9000) // 8567
randomLetter            // 'b'
// returns randomly ordered subsequence of a provided array
randomElements($array = array ('a','b','c'), $count = 1) // array('c')
randomElement($array = array ('a','b','c')) // 'b'

  • Found the plugin useful on 14 Dec, 2016

    Worked first time and produced good fake data really easily.

    The instructions should explain that it is easy to add fake data to a seeder which, for plugin development, is what you will probably want to use.
