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";
As of vesion
v3.0.0 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 = ;
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
