An extended and smarter version of UI5 MockServer for meaningful mock data.
OpenUI5 Smart MockServer uses the open source library Faker.js to generate better fake data for testing your app or for a demo. You can use any available method in Faker.js.
Smart data can be automatically generated based on OData SAP Semantics Annotations. You don't need to code anything, just run Smart MockServer with a metadata.xml containing SAP Semantics Annotations. In case your metadata.xml doesn't have SAP Semantics annotations, you can set Smart Rules manually mapping the OData property to a Faker.js method.
Regular MockServer: just a bunch of texts and numbers
Smart MockServer: meaningful data, better for tests and presentations to customer
OData SAP Semantics Annotations
OData SAP Semantic Annotations tell which of the OData properties contain e.g. a phone number, a part of a name or address, or something related to a calendar event or an analytic query. This is important for apps running on mobile devices that want to seamlessly integrate into contacts, calendar, and telephony. https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/EmTech/SAP+Annotations+for+OData+Version+2.0#SAPAnnotationsforODataVersion2.0-Property_sap_semanticsAttributesap:semantics
Smart MockServer will generate data for these properties automatically, but not for all of them, have a look at the demo to see the supported sap:semantics annotations.
