Package provides simple JediFaker binding into Laravel factories.

JediFaker is an extension for Faker data generator. It does not affect original Faker in any way.


composer require hydreflab/laravel-jedi-faker

Service provider registration

No service provider registration in app.php is needed. Package uses Laravel auto discovery feature.

However, if for some reason you don't want to use auto discovery, disable that in your application's composer.json file:

"extra": {
    "laravel": {
        "dont-discover": [

Then manually register HydrefLab\Laravel\JediFaker\JediFakerServiceProvider::class service provider.

Basic usage

New features added by JediFaker package can be used straight away in your Laravel factories:

$factory->define(App\User::class, function (Faker $faker) {
    return [
        'name' => $faker->character,
        'email' => $faker->unique()->safeEmail,
        'planet' => $faker->planet,
        'species' => $faker->species,
        'vehicle' => $faker->vehicle,
        'password' => '$2y$10$TKh8H1.PfQx37YgCzwiKb.KjNyWgaHb9cbcoQgdIVFlYg7B77UdFm', // secret
        'remember_token' => str_random(10),

For more details, check JediFaker repository.

Note: JediFaker package only adds new formatters and is not extending/overriding Faker generator, therefore IDE autocompletion will not work for newly added features.
