Faker

VersionLicenseBuild StatusIssuesDownloadsGitter

Faker is a pure Elixir library for generating fake data.

Quickstart

  • add {:faker, "~> 0.16"} to your deps in mix.exs:

    defp deps do
      [{:faker, "~> 0.16", only: :test}]
    end
  • run:

    mix deps.get
    
  • add Faker.start() to test/test_helper.exs:

    ExUnit.start()
    Faker.start()
  • jump to usage examples.

Requirements

  • OTP 19+
  • Elixir 1.6+

Usage

See documentation and usage examples.

Troubleshooting

  • If you get a message like the one below when you call Faker.Address.city/0, you need to add :faker to your application's mix file, in the applications function, as above.

    ** (FunctionClauseError) no function clause matching in Faker.Address.city_count/1
    lib/faker/address.ex:48: Faker.Address.city_count(nil)
    lib/faker/address.ex:41: Faker.Address.city/0
    

Tools

Faker was designed as a lightweight library, that's why it can be easily used with other tools.

Templating

You can build templates for testing purposes with the Blacksmith project. See the Blacksmith readme for details.
