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.

Faker is heavily inspired by Perl's Data::Faker, and by ruby's Faker.

Faker requires PHP >= 5.3.3.

Table of Contents

Installation

composer require fzaninotto/faker

Basic Usage

Autoloading

Faker supports both

PSR-0
as
PSR-4
autoloaders. ```php <?php

When installed via composer

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php'; ```

You can also load

Fakers
shipped
PSR-0
autoloader ```php <?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.
// 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)
.
name, "\n";

  // Noemy Vandervort V
  // Lexi O'Conner
  // Gracie Weber
  // Roscoe Johns
  // Emmett Lebsack
  // Keegan Thiel
  // Wellington Koelpin II
  // Ms. Karley Kiehn V

Tip: For a quick generation of fake data, you can also use Faker as a command line tool thanks to faker-cli.

Formatters

Each of the generator properties (like

name
,
address
, and
lorem
) are called "formatters". A faker generator has many of them, packaged in "providers". Here is a list of the bundled formatters in the default locale.

Faker\Provider\Base

randomDigit             // 7
randomDigitNot(5)       // 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, or 9
randomDigitNotNull      // 5
randomNumber($nbDigits = NULL, $strict = false) // 79907610
randomFloat($nbMaxDecimals = NULL, $min = 0, $max = NULL) // 48.8932
numberBetween($min = 1000, $max = 9000) // 8567
randomLetter            // 'b'
// returns randomly ordered subsequence of a provided array
randomElements($array = array ('a','b','c'), $count = 1) // array('c')
randomElement($array = array ('a','b','c')) // 'b'
shuffle('hello, world') // 'rlo,h eoldlw'
shuffle(array(1, 2, 3)) // array(2, 1, 3)
numerify('Hello ###') // 'Hello 609'
lexify('Hello ???') // 'Hello wgt'
bothify('Hello ##??') // 'Hello 42jz'
asciify('Hello ***') // 'Hello R6+'

Modifiers

Faker provides three special providers,

unique()
,
optional()
, and
valid()
, to be called before any provider.
// unique() forces providers to return unique values
$values = array();
for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) {
  // get a random digit, but always a new one, to avoid duplicates
  $values []= $faker->unique()->randomDigit;
}
print_r($values); // [4, 1, 8, 5, 0, 2, 6, 9, 7, 3]

// providers with a limited range will throw an exception when no new unique value can be generated $values = array(); try { for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) { $values []= $faker->unique()->randomDigitNotNull; } } catch (\OverflowException $e) { echo "There are only 9 unique digits not null, Faker can't generate 10 of them!"; }

// you can reset the unique modifier for all providers by passing true as first argument $faker->unique($reset = true)->randomDigitNotNull; // will not throw OverflowException since unique() was reset // tip: unique() keeps one array of values per provider

// optional() sometimes bypasses the provider to return a default value instead (which defaults to NULL) $values = array(); for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) { // get a random digit, but also null sometimes $values []= $faker->optional()->randomDigit; } print_r($values); // [1, 4, null, 9, 5, null, null, 4, 6, null]

// optional() accepts a weight argument to specify the probability of receiving the default value. // 0 will always return the default value; 1 will always return the provider. Default weight is 0.5 (50% chance). $faker->optional($weight = 0.1)->randomDigit; // 90% chance of NULL $faker->optional($weight = 0.9)->randomDigit; // 10% chance of NULL

// optional() accepts a default argument to specify the default value to return. // Defaults to NULL. $faker->optional($weight = 0.5, $default = false)->randomDigit; // 50% chance of FALSE $faker->optional($weight = 0.9, $default = 'abc')->word; // 10% chance of 'abc'

// valid() only accepts valid values according to the passed validator functions $values = array(); $evenValidator = function($digit) { return $digit % 2 === 0; }; for ($i = 0; $i < 10; $i++) { $values []= $faker->valid($evenValidator)->randomDigit; } print_r($values); // [0, 4, 8, 4, 2, 6, 0, 8, 8, 6]

// just like unique(), valid() throws an overflow exception when it can't generate a valid value $values = array(); try { $faker->valid($evenValidator)->randomElement(1, 3, 5, 7, 9); } catch (\OverflowException $e) { echo "Can't pick an even number in that set!"; }

If you would like to use a modifier with a value not generated by Faker, use the

passthrough()
method.
passthrough()
simply returns whatever value it was given.
$faker->optional()->passthrough(mt_rand(5, 15));

Localization

Faker\Factory
can take a locale as an argument, to return localized data. If no localized provider is found, the factory fallbacks to the default locale (en_US).
name, "\n";
}
  // Luce du Coulon
  // Auguste Dupont
  // Roger Le Voisin
  // Alexandre Lacroix
  // Jacques Humbert-Roy
  // Thérèse Guillet-Andre
  // Gilles Gros-Bodin
  // Amélie Pires
  // Marcel Laporte
  // Geneviève Marchal

You can check available Faker locales in the source code, under the

Provider
directory. The localization of Faker is an ongoing process, for which we need your help. Don't hesitate to create localized providers to your own locale and submit a PR!

Populating Entities Using an ORM or an ODM

Faker provides adapters for Object-Relational and Object-Document Mappers (currently, Propel, Doctrine2, CakePHP, Spot2, Mandango and Eloquent are supported). These adapters ease the population of databases through the Entity classes provided by an ORM library (or the population of document stores using Document classes provided by an ODM library).

To populate entities, create a new populator class (using a generator instance as parameter), then list the class and number of all the entities that must be generated. To launch the actual data population, call the

execute()
method.

Note that some of the

populators
could require additional parameters. As example the
doctrine
populator has an option to specify its batchSize on how often it will flush the UnitOfWork to the database.

Here is an example showing how to populate 5

Author
and 10
Book
objects:
addEntity('Author', 5);
$populator->addEntity('Book', 10);
$insertedPKs = $populator->execute();

The populator uses name and column type guessers to populate each column with relevant data. For instance, Faker populates a column named

first_name
using the
firstName
formatter, and a column with a
TIMESTAMP
type using the
dateTime
formatter. The resulting entities are therefore coherent. If Faker misinterprets a column name, you can still specify a custom closure to be used for populating a particular column, using the third argument to
addEntity()
:
addEntity('Book', 5, array(
  'ISBN' => function() use ($generator) { return $generator->ean13(); }
));

In this example, Faker will guess a formatter for all columns except

ISBN
, for which the given anonymous function will be used.

Tip: To ignore some columns, specify

null
for the column names in the third argument of
addEntity()
. This is usually necessary for columns added by a behavior:
addEntity('Book', 5, array(
  'CreatedAt' => null,
  'UpdatedAt' => null,
));

Of course, Faker does not populate autoincremented primary keys. In addition,

Faker\ORM\Propel\Populator::execute()
returns the list of inserted PKs, indexed by class:
 (34, 35, 36, 37, 38),
//   'Book'   => (456, 457, 458, 459, 470, 471, 472, 473, 474, 475)
// )

Note: Due to the fact that

Faker
returns all the primary keys inserted, the memory consumption will go up drastically when you do batch inserts due to the big list of data.

In the previous example, the

Book
and
Author
models share a relationship. Since
Author
entities are populated first, Faker is smart enough to relate the populated
Book
entities to one of the populated
Author
entities.

Lastly, if you want to execute an arbitrary function on an entity before insertion, use the fourth argument of the

addEntity()
method:
addEntity('Book', 5, array(), array(
  function($book) { $book->publish(); },
));

Seeding the Generator

You may want to get always the same generated data - for instance when using Faker for unit testing purposes. The generator offers a

seed()
method, which seeds the random number generator. Calling the same script twice with the same seed produces the same results.
seed(1234);

echo $faker->name; // 'Jess Mraz I';

Tip: DateTime formatters won't reproduce the same fake data if you don't fix the

$max
value:
dateTime(); // equivalent to $faker->dateTime($max = 'now')
// make sure you fix the $max parameter
$faker->dateTime('2014-02-25 08:37:17'); // will return always the same date when seeded

Tip: Formatters won't reproduce the same fake data if you use the

rand()
php function. Use
$faker
or
mt_rand()
instead:
realText(rand(10,20));
// good
$faker->realText($faker->numberBetween(10,20));

Faker Internals: Understanding Providers

A

Faker\Generator
alone can't do much generation. It needs
Faker\Provider
objects to delegate the data generation to them.
Faker\Factory::create()
actually creates a
Faker\Generator
bundled with the default providers. Here is what happens under the hood:
addProvider(new Faker\Provider\en_US\Person($faker));
$faker->addProvider(new Faker\Provider\en_US\Address($faker));
$faker->addProvider(new Faker\Provider\en_US\PhoneNumber($faker));
$faker->addProvider(new Faker\Provider\en_US\Company($faker));
$faker->addProvider(new Faker\Provider\Lorem($faker));
$faker->addProvider(new Faker\Provider\Internet($faker));

Whenever you try to access a property on the

$faker
object, the generator looks for a method with the same name in all the providers attached to it. For instance, calling
$faker->name
triggers a call to
Faker\Provider\Person::name()
. And since Faker starts with the last provider, you can easily override existing formatters: just add a provider containing methods named after the formatters you want to override.

That means that you can easily add your own providers to a

Faker\Generator
instance. A provider is usually a class extending
\Faker\Provider\Base
. This parent class allows you to use methods like
lexify()
or
randomNumber()
; it also gives you access to formatters of other providers, through the protected
$generator
property. The new formatters are the public methods of the provider class.

Here is an example provider for populating Book data:

class Book extends \Faker\Provider\Base
{
  public function title($nbWords = 5)
  {
    $sentence = $this->generator->sentence($nbWords);
    return substr($sentence, 0, strlen($sentence) - 1);
  }

public function ISBN() { return $this->generator->ean13(); } }

To register this provider, just add a new instance of

\Faker\Provider\Book
to an existing generator:
addProvider(new \Faker\Provider\Book($faker));

Now you can use the two new formatters like any other Faker formatter:

setTitle($faker->title);
$book->setISBN($faker->ISBN);
$book->setSummary($faker->text);
$book->setPrice($faker->randomNumber(2));

Tip: A provider can also be a Plain Old PHP Object. In that case, all the public methods of the provider become available to the generator.

Real Life Usage

The following script generates a valid XML document:


  
    
boolean(25)): ?>
    

    
streetAddress ?> city ?> postcode ?> state ?>
boolean(33)): ?> bs ?> boolean(33)): ?> boolean(15)): ?>
text(400) ?> ]]>

Running this script produces a document looking like:
