Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?


Unmanaged package for your developer edition.

Creates a toy data model and inserts sample data so you can experiment faster on the platform. Now includes:

  • Simple Lightning Components
  • A pre-configured Lightning Component Tab for your mobile navigation
  • A simple Lightning Process that inserts Chatter posts immediately and an hour later.
  • A Lightning Connect external data source under the LAB Mo External Data app.

This is not an app. This is more like lab equipment for your developer edition. Questions? Suggestions? Issues? Hit the Twitter @ReidCarlberg.

If you don't have a free Dev Org, start by getting one here.

Note: The new version requires that you enable Lightning Components. You might enjoy Salesforce Lightning Component Newbie Notes as well.

Mo Tester is designed to make it easier for devs to try things out on the Salesforce Platform by providing a toy data model and light data.

Mo Tester was inspired by Steve Molis's comments on the Button Click Admin podcast. When asked how he tested things so quickly, he described a basic dev org pre-configured with an object with four of every kind of field. I smacked myself in the head and said we should all have one of those!

Note: @ReidCarlberg put this together, and any weaknesses aren't @SteveMoForce's fault. Thanks, Mr. Mo, for being a good sport about the name, and suggestions along the way!!

Thanks also to Matthew Botos for the stupendous SmartFactory code.

If you get this error, you haven't enabled Lightning Components in your org.
