faker.js - generate massive amounts of fake data in the browser and node.js
var faker = ;var randomName = fakername; // Rowan Nikolausvar randomEmail = fakerinternet; // Kassandra.Haley@erich.bizvar randomCard = fakerhelpers; // random contact card containing many properties
JSDoc API Browser
faker.js contains a super useful generator method
Faker.fake for combining faker API methods using a mustache string format.
console;// outputs: "Marks, Dean Sr."
This will interpolate the format string with the value of methods
As of version
v2.0.0 faker.js has support for multiple localities.
The default language locale is set to English.
Setting a new locale is simple:
// sets locale to defakerlocale = "de";
Individual Localization Packages
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 localevar faker = ;
Setting a randomness seed
If you want consistent results, you can set your own seed:
faker;var firstRandom = fakerrandom;// Setting the seed again resets the sequence.faker;var secondRandom = fakerrandom;console;
npm install . make test
You can view a code coverage report generated in coverage/lcov-report/index.html.
faker uses gulp to automate it's build process. Each build operation is a separate task which can be run independently.

npm run jsdoc
ReadMe.md file for
faker.js is automatically generated and should not be modified directly. All updateds to
ReadMe.md should be perfomed in
./build/src/docs.md and then the build script should be run.
