This release of scala-faker is build against Scala
This section will give you a short introduction on how to get started with scala-faker.
So how do I use it? Let's see ...
import faker._ // That's all you need! case class User(name: String, username: String, email: String) val name = Name.name val user = User(name, Internet.user_name(name), Internet.free_email(name)) // User(Kimi Hauke,kimihauke,email@example.com)
Pretty easy, right?
By default scala-faker tries you systems locale for generating fake data. If there
isn't any localization for it (right now there are files for:
de-ch, de, en-gb, en-us,
en, nl) it will fall back to
en. The locale can be changed any time with
import faker._ // changing Language to german Faker.locale("de")
Adding scala-faker as dependency to your project is really simple. Just add
resolvers += "justwrote" at "http://repo.justwrote.it/releases/" libraryDependencies += "it.justwrote" %% "scala-faker" % "0.1"
<repository> <id>justwrote</id> <url>http://repo.justwrote.it/releases/</url> </repository> ... <dependency> <groupId>it.justwrote</groupId> <artifactId>scala-faker_2.9.1</artifactId> <version>0.1</version> </dependency>
2.9.1 is you Scala version.
This library uses the locales data from the ruby faker library.
