Faker is a PHP library that generates fake data for you. Whether you need to bootstrap your database, create good-looking XML documents, fill-in your persistence to stress test it, or anonymize data taken from a production service, Faker is for you.

Installation

composer require fzaninotto/faker

Basic Usage

Autoloading

Faker supports both PSR-0 as PSR-4 autoloaders.

<?php
# When installed via composer
require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

You can also load Fakers shipped PSR-0 autoloader

<?php
# Load Fakers own autoloader
require_once '/path/to/Faker/src/autoload.php';

alternatively, you can use any another PSR-4 compliant autoloader

Create fake data

Use Faker\Factory::create() to create and initialize a faker generator, which can generate data by accessing properties named after the type of data you want.

<?php
// use the factory to create a Faker\Generator instance
$faker = Faker\Factory::create();

// generate data by accessing properties
echo $faker->name;
  // 'Lucy Cechtelar';
echo $faker->address;
  // "426 Jordy Lodge
  // Cartwrightshire, SC 88120-6700"
echo $faker->text;
  // Dolores sit sint laboriosam dolorem culpa et autem. Beatae nam sunt fugit
  // et sit et mollitia sed.
  // Fuga deserunt tempora facere magni omnis. Omnis quia temporibus laudantium
  // sit minima sint.

Even if this example shows a property access, each call to $faker->name yields a different (random) result. This is because Faker uses __get() magic, and forwards Faker\Generator->$property calls to Faker\Generator->format($property).

<?php
for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) {
  echo $faker->name, "\n";
