Silly

A python library for producing fanciful test data.

Why silly?

Sometimes I need more test data than just "Testy Testerson" at "123 Fake St."

silly can be used to generate data for things, names, dates, addresses, text...

I want advanced features OR this data is not very professional looking!

Silly is designed to be quick, funny, and dumb.

If you want localization, customization, and data that doesn't contain the word "poopbutt", you're probably going to want to look at faker instead.

Installation

pip install silly

How to use

import silly

Generating Contact Information

name = silly.name()
print("my name is {}".format(name))
# my name is colonel beefheart

print("you should not contact me at {}".format(silly.email()))
# you should not contact me at buttpike@chump-lol.xyz

Capitalization and Slugification

# this works on everything that it would make sense for it to work on
#   for everything else it should fail silently
#       like me

silly.name(capitalize=True)
# Colonel Travis Coffeesecrets
silly.name(slugify=True)
# carol-kittenmatt

Generating Dates and Times

year, month, day = silly.datetime().year, silly.datetime().month, silly.datetime().day
# 1983, 12, 28

Generating Numbers

number = silly.number()
print(number)
# 7
number_in_words = silly.numberwang()
print(number_in_words)
# Eighty Eight

Generating Words

silly.noun()
# arm
silly.verb()
# jump
silly.adjective()
# musky
silly.plural()
# kittens

Generating a Past Participle

silly.past_participle()
# Traceback (most recent call last):
# File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
# AttributeError: module 'main' has no attribute 'past_participle'

Damn.

Generating... Things

silly.thing()
# bunch of hats
silly.thing()
# eye
silly.thing()
# seventy five butts

silly.a_thing()
# a tub of hams
silly.a_thing()
# an arm
#silly.a_thing()
# ninety jeans

...or Lots of Things

silly.things()
# a bunch of hats, a tub of hams, and ninety jeans

Generating Domains

silly.domain()
# pants.xyz

Generating Phone Numbers

silly.phone_number()
# 555-6868

Generate an Image

silly.image()
# http://dummyimage.com/800x600/292929/e3e3e3&text=mighty poop

silly.image(width=1000, height=60)
# http://placekitten.com/1000/60

silly.image(https=True, width=40, height=50)
# https://dummyimage.com/40x50/292929/e3e3e3&text=house

Generate a Whole Sentence...

silly.sentence()
# Your dad will head to Integrated Harvest And Secret to buy a shell boat.

...Or Even a Paragraph!

silly.paragraph()
# Youssef Chiffon needs a cluster of white dances, badly.
# Cabinet Management Systems is the best company in Bagsberg.
# Armourshire is in North Testonia. Fear space!

silly.paragraph(length=1000)
# oh no! that was the length in SENTENCES!
# what have we done!
# oh well
# let's do this anyways:
#
# Cheekshop is the best company in Birmingplace.
# Cornelius Slabmove will braise a heart, seventy-two rum staffs,
# and one hundred and thirty-two plans. Mysteriousshire Plumbing
# is the best company in Coasttown. Your mom can't wait to punch
# one hundred and thirty-seven brown socks in Jerkhall....

Generate Some Markdown

silly.markdown()
# ## The World Needs A Wad Of Pencils, Badly.
# God himself will head to The Law Offices Of Dancereverend, Sweater, And Footsir to buy a group of beech hearts.
#
# ## Birmingfisher Is In Mordor.
# The United Nations needs one hundred and sixteen asses, badly.
# Deviceshall Municipal Coin Department is the best company in Summerton.
# The United Nations needs a garlic shin, badly.
# The Cape Warehouse is the best company in Sweatershall.

It generates markdown that looks like this:

To Get To South Testasia, You Need To Go To Jeansound, Then Drive North.

The Illuminati Needs A Spud, Badly.

Coast Management Systems is the best company in Central Burgerhall. Intersmell is the best company in Whiteholder City. Personton Municipal Onion Department is the best company in Shieldstown. Birmingcloud is in Tatooine. Birmingdong is in East Arztotzka. Birmingboard is in Tatooine. Chloe Shelfgroup will grab one hundred and twenty-six collapsible sausages. Your mom will spin a blanket.

Generate a Gender

silly.gender()
# Awesome
silly.gender()
# Multitudes
silly.gender()
# Nil

Generate a Company

silly.company(capitalize=True)
# Beefstapler Studios
silly.company(capitalize=True)
# Qarth Ministry Of Cages
silly.company(capitalize=True)
# Olivesoft

Generate Whole Addresses (all fictional, of course)

silly.address(capitalize=True)
# Thirty-One West Key Block
silly.address()
# apt twenty-three, 922 south code drive
silly.country()
stankonia
silly.city(capitalize=True)
Cloudston
silly.city(slugify=True)
beefton-south
silly.postal_code()
35335
silly.postal_code()
K7K 3G3

Generate some tags

tags = list(set([silly.adjective() for x in range(0,10)]))
# ['enormous', 'sly', 'juniper', 'rum', 'touchy', 'marine', 'polka', 'olive', 'sexy', 'sluggish']

why is that wrapped in list() and set()?

That's a sneaky way to eliminate duplicates.

Is there more!?

YES. Well, there are some silly things that aren't totally covered in the docs, like silly.direction() or silly.city_suffix() but I didn't think that they would be that useful.

That's Right. I will do it.

You do.

I Want to Write a Script to Use silly With the 'say' Command on Mac

You should do that. It would be great.

I Want to Contribute to Silly Development

Fork and clone the repo on github.

To install the development and test requirements, run the following command:

$> pip install -e .[dev,test]

Once you've made changes that you feel need to be reflected in silly, create a pull request.

If your pull request fails any tests in python 2.7 or 3.5, it will be rejected outright.

If your pull request is insufficiently ridiculous it will be rejected outright.
