API Documentation

🚀 Features | WIP

  • 💌 Locations - Generate valid looking Addresses, Zip Codes, Street Names, States, and Countries!
  • Time-based Data - Past, present, future, recent, soon... whenever!
  • 🌏 Localization - Set a locale to generate realistic looking Names, Addresses, and Phone Numbers.
  • 💸 Finance - Create stubbed out Account Details, Transactions, and Crypto Addresses.
  • 👠 Products - Generate Prices, Product Names, Adjectives, and Descriptions.
  • 👾 Hacker Jargon - “Try to reboot the SQL bus, maybe it will bypass the virtual application!”
  • 🧍 Names - Generate virtual humans with a complete online and offline identity.
  • 🔢 Numbers - Of course, we can also generate random numbers and strings.

Note: Faker tries to generate realistic data and not obvious fake data. The generated names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, and/or other data might be coincidentally valid information. Please do not send any of your messages/calls to them from your test setup.

📦 Install

npm install --save-dev @ahmedrowaihi/faker-ar

🪄 Usage

import { faker } from '@ahmedrowaihi/faker-ar';
// import { faker } from '@ahmedrowaihi/faker-ar/locale/ar';

export const USERS: User[] = [];

export function createRandomUser(): User {
  return {
    userId: faker.datatype.uuid(),
    username: faker.internet.userName(),
    email: faker.internet.email(),
    avatar: faker.image.avatar(),
    password: faker.internet.password(),
    birthdate: faker.date.birthdate(),
    registeredAt: faker.date.past(),

Array.from({ length: 10 }).forEach(() => {

The above code indicates a basic usage of Faker. The point of interest is the import statements at the top. The first import indicates how one can import the entirety of Faker, which includes every locale, while the commented-out import showcases how to import only a single locale. In most situations, importing a single locale is preferable for performance because some testing frameworks reload imports for every test file, which causes startup latencies to add up quickly. Thus, limiting the import to a single locale can speed up startup times.

💎 Modules

An in-depth overview of the API methods is available in the documentation.
The API covers the following modules:

Module Example Output

Date faker.date.past() Sat Oct 20 2018 04:19:38 GMT-0700 (Pacific Daylight Time)
Finance faker.finance.amount() ¥23400 (After setting locale)
Git faker.git.commitMessage() feat: add products list page

Faker contains a generator method faker.helpers.fake for combining faker API methods using a mustache string format.

console.log(faker.helpers.fake('Hello {{person.prefix}} {{person.lastName}}, how are you today?'));

🌏 Localization

Faker has support for multiple locales.

The default language locale is set to English.

Setting a new locale is simple:

// sets locale to de
faker.locale = 'de';

See our documentation for a list of provided languages

Please note: not every locale provides data for every module. In our pre-made locales, we fallback to English in such a case as this is the most complete and most commonly used language.

⚙️ Setting a randomness seed

If you want consistent results, you can set your own seed:


const firstRandom = faker.number.int();

// Setting the seed again resets the sequence.

const secondRandom = faker.number.int();

console.log(firstRandom === secondRandom);
