Imposter¶ ↑

Real fake data. Allows creation of an entire schema of fake data that honors associations.

Forked for urlsplease.com to adapt to Ruby 1.9.x (CSV library)

Usage¶ ↑

# YAMLs are executed in series order much like migrations

  • rake::imposter IMPOSTER=“products” #generate only the /test/fixtures/products.csv

  • rake::imposter #generate all /test/imposter/*.yaml to /test/fixtures

  • rake::imposter –force #generate all /test/imposter/-*.yaml to /test/fixtures to

  • overwrite any existing .csv

  • Imposter::Noun.noun => “apple” #random noun

  • Imposter::Verb.verbs(3) => “run tag jump” #random verbs string space delimited

#—For unit/integration/etl testing that require real but random addresses

  • Imposter::CSZ.zip => “90210” #random real postal code

  • Imposter::CSZ.city(:zip=>“90210”) => “Beverly Hills” #real city name from zip

  • Imposter::CSZ.state_abbr(:zip=>“90210”) => “CA” #real 2 letter state abbreviation upper case

  • Imposter::CSZ.state_name(:zip=>“90210”) => “California” #Real State name Camelized

  • Imposter::CSZ.zip(:state_abbr=>“CA”) => “90115” #Random but real postal code from real state.
