Faker is a port of Ruby Faker library to the clojure programming language.

It is useful when you want to generate fake but good-looking data, such as in test scenarios or staging servers.


The easiest way is to use Leiningen. Add the following dependency to your project.clj file:

[faker "0.2.2"]


(ns test
  (:use faker.lorem))

(def n (take 10 (names)))
(def p (take 10 (paragraphs)))

There are several more namespaces for generating:

  • Person names
  • Company names
  • Addresses
  • Domains and emails
  • Telephone numbers
  • Text
