would be cool to support alice (and with it, faker) so that we can just load fixtures from simple files instead of writing code. see https://github.com/nelmio/alice
i can do a PR, but wanted to ask first
right now i do a pseudo-fixture class that just uses alice.
class LoadPersonData implements FixtureInterface
public function load(ObjectManager $manager)
Purpose of hautelook/AliceBundle.
oh, very cool! i created hautelook/AliceBundle#72
can you do a pull request on the symfony-docs page http://symfony.com/doc/current/bundles/DoctrineFixturesBundle/index.html to explain that for generated data, faker/alice + AliceBundle is a thing to look at?
That would be cool but it's not the docs of symfony-docs but of the bundle DoctrineFixturesBundle instead so not sure it's doable.
ah yes, that PR would need to go against this repository instead: https://github.com/doctrine/DoctrineFixturesBundle/blob/master/Resources/doc/index.rst
