Installation

Please replace your faker dependency with @faker-js/faker. This is the official, stable fork of Faker.

npm install @faker-js/faker --save-dev

or

yarn add @faker-js/faker --dev

or

pnpm add @faker-js/faker --save-dev

Typescript Support

Types are available via the @types/faker package. You must manually link them using a *.d.ts file, like so:

// faker.d.ts
declare module '@faker-js/faker' {
  import faker from 'faker';
  export default faker;
}

FAQ - What happened to the original faker.js?

This project was originally created and hosted at https://github.com/marak/Faker.js/ - however around 4th Jan, 2022 - the author decided to delete the repository (for unknown reasons).

In the interest of the community, it has been decided that Faker will continue to be maintained here and all help in its development will be appreciated.

Demo

Coming soon!

Usage

Browser

<script src="faker.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

</script>

Node.js

var faker = require('faker');

Faker.fake()

Faker contains a super useful generator method Faker.fake for combining faker API methods using a mustache string format.

Example:

console.log(
  faker.fake('{{name.lastName}}, {{name.firstName}} {{name.suffix}}')
);

This will interpolate the format string with the value of methods name.lastName(), name.firstName(), and name.suffix()

Localization

As of version v2.0.0 Faker has support for multiple localities.

The default language locale is set to English.

Setting a new locale is simple:

// sets locale to de
faker.locale = 'de';
  • az
  • ar
  • cz
  • de
  • de_AT
  • de_CH
  • en
  • en_AU
  • en_AU_ocker
  • en_BORK
  • en_CA
  • en_GB
  • en_IE
  • en_IND
  • en_US
  • en_ZA
  • es
  • es_MX
  • fa
  • fi
  • fr
  • fr_CA
  • fr_CH
  • ge
  • hy
  • hr
  • id_ID
  • it
  • ja
  • ko
  • nb_NO
  • ne
  • nl
  • nl_BE
  • pl
  • pt_BR
  • pt_PT
  • ro
  • ru
  • sk
  • sv
  • tr
  • uk
  • vi
  • zh_CN
  • zh_TW

Individual Localization Packages

Faker supports incremental loading of locales.

By default, requiring faker will include all locale data.

In a production environment, you may only want to include the locale data for a specific set of locales.

// loads only de locale
var faker = require('faker/locale/de');

Setting a randomness seed

If you want consistent results, you can set your own seed:

faker.seed(123);

var firstRandom = faker.datatype.number();

// Setting the seed again resets the sequence.
faker.seed(123);

var secondRandom = faker.datatype.number();

console.log(firstRandom === secondRandom);

Documentation

Faker is currently in the process of migrating its documentation to Vitepress (the successor of Vuepress).

Developing the docs

# build the Faker library for the browser
# it's used inside of certain routes
npm run browser

npm run docs:dev

Building and serving the docs statically

# build the Faker library for the browser
# it's used inside of certain routes
npm run browser

npm run docs:build # Output docs to /dist
npm run docs:serve # Serve docs from /dist

Deploying Documentation

The website is kindly hosted for free by the Netlify team under their Open Source plan. See the netlify.toml for configuration.

Tests

npm install .
npm run test

You can view a code coverage report generated in coverage/lcov-report/index.html.

Building Faker

Faker uses gulp to automate its build process. Each build operation is a separate task which can be run independently.
