data-manufactory is a package for creating batch of objects. It provides a simple factory class you can instanciate to generate the batches you need.

Note: This package is based on meteor-factory written by versolearning.
Most of the credits goes to them.
If you don't need our trimmed version of the package, please use the original one.


npm install --save data-manufactory
yarn add data-manufactory


data-manufactory exports a single Factory class you can import :

// ES6
import Factory from "data-manufactory";
// ES5
const Factory = require("data-manufactory");

Once imported, you just have to instanciate it to have an exportable factory you can use to generate data.

import Factory from "data-manufactory";
// In order to differentiate your factories, we advise you to name them as the data being generated
export const DataFactory = new Factory({
  name: "factory", // The name of your factory
  schema: {}, // The schema to apply and generate the data
  after: [], // An array of function to apply each time an object is generated during build
  afterBuild: [], // An array of function to apply after the build is completed
  enableLogging: false, // Whether or not the logging should be enabled for this seeder

You can read the README.md of versolearning for more information and documentation.
