jaymock

Minimal fake JSON test data generator.

CircleCI XO Codecov

Install

~ ❯❯❯ npm install @meeshkanml/jaymock

Usage

const jaymock = require('@meeshkanml/jaymock')

const data = {
  firstName: 'name.firstName',
  lastName: 'name.lastName',
  ssn: 'ssn',
  address: {
    streetAddress: 'address.streetAddress',
    city: 'address.city',
    zipCode: 'address.zipCode'
  },
  emails: 'internet.email',
  ipAddress: 'internet.ip',
  _repeat: 2
}

const jm = jaymock()

const randExp = require('randexp').randexp
// Add custom functions using `.extend()`
jm.extend({
  ssn: () => randExp(/^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/)
})

const fakeData = jm.populate(data)
/*
  [
    {
      firstName: 'Marguerite',
      lastName: 'Will',
      ssn: '076-86-6001',
      address: {
        streetAddress: '4509 Abernathy Port',
        city: 'Port Charles',
        zipCode: '26322'
      },
      emails: 'Missouri64@yahoo.com',
      ipAddress: '44.210.55.248'
    },
    {
      firstName: 'Fredrick',
      lastName: 'McClure',
      ssn: '610-42-4980',
      address: {
        streetAddress: '56363 Goyette Station',
        city: 'West Floydmouth',
        zipCode: '73634-6751'
      },
      emails: 'Aurore58@hotmail.com',
      ipAddress: '237.7.221.162'
    }
  ]

Mock API using express

const jaymock = require('@meeshkanml/jaymock')
const express = require('express')

app = express()
app.use(express.json())

const jm = jaymock()
jm.extend('chance', new require('chance')())

app.post('/', (req, res) => res.json(jm.populate(req.body)))

app.listen(3000)

API

.populate(template)

Returns an object, populated with fake data.

template

Type: object

Each object's value can be one of Faker.js's API methods, in the format '{topic}.{subtopic}' (e.g. 'name.firstName') or a custom method, defined using the .extend function, in the format '{function_name}' or {function_name}.{nested_function_name} (e.g. 'foo' will call foo() and 'foo.bar' will call foo.bar()).

A fake value can be generated n times, into an array of n values, by including |n at the end of the individual object's method name (e.g. 'name.firstName|5' will generate an array, populated with 5 fake first names). This also works with custom functions, accordingly.

To use the faker.fake() method (which permits the combination of faker API methods), use the format 'fake({mustache_strings})' (e.g. 'fake({{name.lastName}}, {{name.firstName}} {{name.suffix}})').

.extend(name, body)

Adds a custom data generation function that can be called in the .populate template using the value of name.

name

Type: string

body

Type: function

.extend(functions)

Adds custom data generation functions that can be called in the .populate template using the value of each object key.

functions

Type: object

Each object key should be the relevant function's name and value the function's body (e.g. { 'chance': new require('chance')() }).

.setFakerLocale(locale)

Sets Faker.js's language locale.

locale

Type: string

Any of Faker.js's locale options.

.setFakerSeed(seed)

Sets Faker.js's randomness seed.

seed

Type: number
