Source code

Generates fake data for testing or populating a development database. Run your tests with realistic data like names, emails, dates, countries...

A Kotlin port of the Faker ruby gem that's suitable to use in Android development. The goal is to reuse their locale data files without changes.

Installing

repositories {
    // ...
    mavenCentral()
}

dependencies {
    implementation 'io.bloco:faker:${fakerVersion}'
}

You can use testImplementation or androidTestImplementation, if you only want to use Faker for testing.

Usage

val faker = Faker()
faker.name.firstName()    // Returns "Aaron"
faker.company.name()      // Returns "Hirthe-Ritchie"

val faker = Faker("nl")
faker.name.firstName()    // Returns "Thijs"

For full list of available options, check the original source. We have tried to keep the operations as close as possible.

Proguard

If you are using R8, the shrinking and obfuscation rules are included automatically.

Otherwise, you will need to add the following options:

-keep class org.yaml.snakeyaml.** { public protected private *; }
-keep class org.yaml.snakeyaml.** { public protected private *; }
-dontwarn org.yaml.snakeyaml.**
