Laravel Populated Factory

Laravel Populated Factory provides an easy way to generate populated factories for models according to types & names of their columns.

Install

You can install this package via composer using this command:

composer require coderello/laravel-populated-factory

The package will automatically register itself.

Usage

The only thing you need to do in order to generate a populated factory is to execute this command:

php artisan make:populated-factory User

This command assumes that the User model is in the App namespace. If your models are situated in another namespace (e.g. App\Models) you should specify them either as Models\\User or \\App\\Models\\User.

Here is the populated factory generated for the User model according to its column types & names.

<?php

use Faker\Generator as Faker;

/** @var $factory \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factory */

$factory->define(\App\User::class, function (Faker $faker) {
    return [
        'name' => $faker->name,
        'email' => $faker->unique()->safeEmail,
        'email_verified_at' => $faker->dateTime,
        'password' => '$2y$10$uTDnsRa0h7wLppc8/vB9C.YqsrAZwhjCgLWjcmpbndTmyo1k5tbRC',
        'remember_token' => $faker->sha1,
        'created_at' => $faker->dateTime,
        'updated_at' => $faker->dateTime,
    ];
});

If you want a custom name for the factory, you need to pass it as the second argument like so:

php artisan make:populated-factory User AdminFactory

If you want to override the existent factory, you need to use --force flag like so:

php artisan make:populated-factory User --force
