Faker

A C# port of the Ruby Faker gem https://github.com/stympy/faker. RimuTec.Faker aims at achieving parity with Ruby Faker. Classes that are on par with Ruby Faker are marked accordingly (see below).

RimuTec.Faker targets .NET Standard 2.0 (netstandard2.0) and .NET Framework 4.6.2 (net462). The library including its source code are licensed under the MIT license.

Installation

RimuTec.Faker is available as a NuGet package. To install follow the instructions at https://www.nuget.org/packages/RimuTec.Faker/.

Available Fake Data Generators

Because Ruby Faker has a large number of generators, we had to start with a small set of classes. Our aim is to add the remaining classes and method over time. If you have preferences please file suggestions as issues on Github (see below). Thank you!

Usage

Quick Start

  1. Install NuGet package. See https://www.nuget.org/packages/RimuTec.Faker for instructions
  2. Add using RimuTec.Faker; at the beginning of your C# source file (or the equivalent for your preferred .NET language)
  3. Generate fake data, e.g. var firstName = Name.NameWithMiddle();

In case of name clashes with other classes in your code base, use one of the following techniques in C# source files:

  1. use fully qualify names, e.g. var firstName = RimuTec.Faker.Name.NameWithMiddle();. Use this if there are only a couple of occurances.
  2. add using NameFaker = RimuTec.Faker.Name; at the beginning of the file and then var firstName = NameFaker.NameWithMiddle();. Use this option if you have many usages within the source file.
