Ember Faker

Build Status

Ember addon wrapper for Faker.js.

Installation for ember-cli >= 0.2.3

ember install ember-faker

ember-cli 0.1.5 - 0.2.2

ember install:addon ember-faker


Import the faker module with import faker from 'faker'. Then you can use it as a default value for dummy data:

import faker from 'faker';

export default DS.Model.extend({
  firstName: DS.attr('string', {
    defaultValue: function() {
      return faker.name.firstName();

Or manually set attributes for tests or prototypes:

import faker from 'faker';

// ...

user.set('firstName', faker.name.firstName());
user.set('lastName', faker.name.lastName());

Environment options

By default faker is included into your build for non-production environments. To include it in production, add this to your config:

// config/environment.js
if (environment === 'production') {
  ENV['ember-faker'] = {
    enabled: true
