require('faker') is very slow, takes about 60ms #167
Here's a sample file which reproduces the issue on my machine; I'm running faker 2.0.0
var time = Date.now(); var faker = require('faker'); console.log("Loading faker took " + (Date.now() - time) + "ms"); // For comparison time = Date.now(); var uuid = require('node-uuid'); console.log("Loading uuid took " + (Date.now() - time) + "ms");
What is going on that takes Faker so long to load? When your tests take less than 1ms each to execute, it's odd to see a 60ms slowdown.
