Time to start planning for version 4! In the next few months I'll be wrapping up a big update to formtools.org (one of my other larger projects) and I want to return to generatedata to do some spring cleaning and maybe undertake some larger improvement.

On my list is:

  • reduce the application size, faster load times
  • rewrite the FE in React or Vue, drop jQuery and older libs. GraphQL?
  • update the build process to webpack or rollup
  • Make site responsive
  • general application style/theme updates
  • Performance, performance, performance for the data generation.
  • Somehow allowing embedding generatedata into other applications & having a standardized return format for the data.

Also, do we want to keep the BE in PHP? Gotta say, having a node implementation would be terrific .- and almost certainly more performant.

Ben,

I left this comment on the other site. Not sure it went though, I apologize if it duplicated.

This web app is actually very cool. I subscribed immediately. It seems you have many of the formats covered. I love all the download options.

As far as feature requests, I guess I have two:

  1. Be able to add a field that is additive from another field. For example, it you were doing pay stubs, and you wanted a random pay period. The beginning random date is no problem, but if the pay period is two weeks, then ending date needs to be two weeks from that first random date to make sense. Seems kind of esoteric but there are a lot of uses for this type of feature.

  2. Having the ability to insert a random graphic, such as a person's face would be handy. There are sites like unsplash.com that provide the public domain people for free.

Anyway, this app has been very useful to me. Thanks for putting the time in.

Al

@flashinpan The current date is done with smarty. Have a look at #350 However I also do wish to see a +14 day and +30 days like you. (financial software - payment terms)

I've tried several methods, but was unsuccessful.

When I look at the struggle I have with the API. My suggestion woulkd be: Export current or saved dataset to an API script?
