json-schema-test-data-generator

Not overly sophisticated utility that generates sample test data based on JSON schema.

Installation

npm install json-schema-test-data-generator

Usage

Module exports a single function that takes a JSON schema and outputs an array of test data objects based on the JSON schema covering various (but not all) combinations to check against. The output objects are in format:

{
  valid:    // boolean: whether the test data is valid against the schema or not
  data:     // object: the actual data
  message:  // string: a descriptive message for the test data
  property: // string|undefined: if available, the key / property at test
}

Sample usage:

var generate = require('json-schema-test-data-generator');

var schema = {
  "type": "object",
  "properties": {
    "name": {
      "type": "string",
      "minLength:": 5
    },
    "active": {
      "type": "boolean"
    },
    "email": {
      "type": "string",
      "format": "email"
    },
    "accountNumber": {
      "type": "number"
    }
  },
  "required": ["name", "email"]
}

console.dir(generate(schema));

Output:

    data: { name: 'Lorem', email: 'Rl5W1lWNWCxI2@IKXPOiX.tx' },
