Contributors can benefit from having real data when they are developing. This script can do a few things (see anonymize.yml):

  • Truncate any tables (logs, and other cruft which may have sensitive data)
  • Nullify fields (emails, passwords, etc)
  • Fill in random/arbitrary data:
    • Random integers
    • Random IP addresses
    • Email addresses
    • Usernames
  • Delete rows based on simple rules: e.g. DELETE FROM mytable WHERE private = "Yes":

    database: tables: mytable: delete: private: Yes


python anonymize.py > anon.sql
cat anon.sql | mysql
