Faker.js

Build Status

npm version

Demo

Hosted API Microservice

http://faker.hook.io

  • Supports all Faker API Methods
  • Full-Featured Microservice

Usage

Browser

<script src = "faker.js" type = "text/javascript"></script>
<script>
  var randomName = faker.name.findName(); // Caitlyn Kerluke
  var randomEmail = faker.internet.email(); // Rusty@arne.info
  var randomCard = faker.helpers.createCard(); // random contact card containing many properties
</script>

Node.js

var faker = require('faker');

var randomName = faker.name.findName(); // Rowan Nikolaus
var randomEmail = faker.internet.email(); // Kassandra.Haley@erich.biz
var randomCard = faker.helpers.createCard(); // random contact card containing many properties

API

Faker.fake()

As of version v3.0.0 faker.js contains a super useful generator method Faker.fake for combining faker API methods using a mustache string format.

Example:

console.log(faker.fake(',  '));
// outputs: "Marks, Dean Sr."

This will interpolate the format string with the value of methods name.lastName(), name.firstName(), and name.suffix()

Localization

As of version v2.0.0 faker.js supports over 27 different language definition packs.

The default language is set to English.

Setting a new locale is simple:

// sets locale to de
faker.locale = "de";
  • de
  • de_AT
  • de_CH
  • el_GR
  • en
  • en_AU
  • en_BORK
  • en_CA
  • en_GB
  • en_IE
  • en_IND
  • en_US
  • en_au_ocker
  • es
  • es_MX
  • fa
  • fr
  • fr_CA
  • ge
  • it
  • ja
  • ko
  • nb_NO
  • nep
  • nl
  • pl
  • pt_BR
  • ru
  • sk
  • sv
  • tr
  • uk
  • vi
  • zh_CN
  • zh_TW

Individual Localization Packages

As of vesion v3.0.0 faker.js supports incremental loading of locales.

By default, requiring faker will include all locale data.

In a production environment, you may only want to include the locale data for a specific set of locales.

// loads only de locale
var faker = require('faker/locale/de');

Tests

npm install .
make test

You can view a code coverage report generated in coverage/lcov-report/index.html.
