faker-es6 - Massive realistic fake data generation tool for ES6+ projects, fully tree-shakable for a smaller package size

A heavily inspired lib to generate massive amounts of realistic fake data.

This lib was inspired by what I would like to see in Marak/faker.js plus what I thought that could be a good exercise for myself.

Installation

Install faker-es6

yarn add --dev faker-es6

or

npm install --dev faker-es6

Getting started

First name example

import { firstName } from 'faker-es6/lib/name/firstName';

const name = firstName(); // Random first name: Yessenia
const anotherName = firstName(); // Random first name: Marilyne

First name with locale example

import { firstName } from 'faker-es6/lib/name/firstName';
import { Locale } from 'faker-es6/lib/types/locale';

const name = firstName(Locale.PT_BR); // Random first name in pt_BR: Bruna
const anotherName = firstName(Locale.PT_BR); // Random first name in pt_BR: Paula

Importing the whole lib example

import faker from 'faker-es6';

const name = faker.name.firstName(); // Random first name: Yessenia
const anotherName = faker.name.firstName(); // Random first name: Marilyne

Localization

faker-es6 supports any ISO valid locale.

To use a locale, just pass it as a parameter in the method you want to use.

Current available locales

Since this is lib is a WIP, at the time of development it only supports:

  • en 🇺🇸
  • ja 🇯🇵 (partial support for now)
  • pt_BR 🇧🇷

Localization example with TypeScript

import { firstName } from 'faker-es6/lib/name/firstName';
import { Locale } from 'faker-es6/lib/types/locale';

const name = firstName(Locale.PT_BR); // Random first name in pt_BR: Bruna
const anotherName = firstName(Locale.PT_BR); // Random first name in pt_BR: Paula

Locale is an TS enum object with all valid ISO language codes

Localization example without TypeScript

import { firstName } from 'faker-es6/lib/name/firstName';

const name = firstName('pt_BR'); // Random first name in pt_BR: Bruna
const anotherName = firstName('pt_BR'); // Random first name in pt_BR: Paula

For further information on the available language codes, see ISO Language Code Table section
