Works with Mateusz's testdata module (see below).
This script produces random objects and inspecs the database to find types and columns for the class.
Basic usage will simply generate data for all columns found in the relevant table, trying to guess the data-type from the DB information and some heuristics. However, a large number of switches make it easy to generate data with more specific data definition.
--help argument for detailed usage information.

user@host:~/$ ./strandd.pl MyCustomPage 10 --inherit SiteTree \ --include Created,Title,Content \ --columns CustomFieldID:Reln \ --maptable CustomFieldID:Member
This would create 10 randomised objects of type MyCustomPage, which inherits from SiteTree. We only inlcude the Created,Title and Content fields from the original object, but then also add The CustomFieldID, specifying that it's a relationship, and that we should find IDs for this relation from the Member table.
user@host:~/$ ./strandd.pl BlogPost 50 \ --include Created,Title,PostImageID,AuthorID,PostImageID \ --columns Content:HtmlText:400 \ --maptable AuthorID:Member \ --many Tags:5 --imgdir PostImageID:blogimages
This example would create 50 items of type
BlogPost. We include only some of the default columns, but also provide
some custom column mappings. We specify that the Content column shall be HtmlText of up to 400 characters.
We also add in a
many_many) relation in, specifying that the column Tags will have up to 5 items.
By default these will be looked up in the table
Tag, but we could have specified another table mapping
if this were not the correct table.
We also tell the script to pick random images for the PostImageID field, but only to pick from files within
For this last to work,
sake dev/tasks/FilesystemSyncTask needs to have been run before this script.
To load the data produced, use the very handy testdata module maintained by Mateusz Uzdowski
