Fabricator - my first publication to public repository

This is actually happenned ! Last year i had a dream - i wanted to create a library that i will publish to Maven Centrar repository, so not only me , but the rest of the world could use it. I took me a year to finalize first version of Fabricator and learn how to publish it. The code you find on github. It is published on Sonatype and Bintray. Below i would like fully describe what this library can do and how it can be added to your project.

Fabricator is a minimalist generator of random strings, numbers, etc. to help reduce some monotony particularly while writing automated tests or
anywhere else you need anything random. It's written on scala but fully backward compatible with Java.

How to install :

For maven projects you need to add next dependency in your pom.xml file :

<dependency>  
  <groupId>com.github.azakordonets</groupId>
  <artifactId>fabricator_2.10</artifactId>
  <version>1.0</version>
</dependency>  

In case you want to use it in your scala project, then just add this lines to your build.sbt file :

resolvers += "Fabricator" at "http://dl.bintray.com/biercoff/Fabricator"

libraryDependencies += "com.github.azakordonets" % "fabricator_2.10" % "1.0"  
Usage :

Fabricator consist of 9 specific modules :

  • Alphanumeric - generates random numbers and strings:
  • Calendar - generates random time and date:
  • Contact - generates contact and person details information :
  • File - generates random csv files
  • Finance - generates random credit cards, bsn numbers
  • Internet - generates random url's, domains, e-mails, ip's, mac addresses, color codes, social networks id's
  • Location - generates random coordinates, geohash
  • Mobile - generates random mobile platforms push tokens or id's
  • Words - generates random words, sentences and even blocks of text

To start using it you need to instantinate fabricator object and then call specific module.

Let's look closer what each module can build :

Alphanumeric

This module allows you to generate any random number or string. As for strings, you can generate either fully random string,
or you can generate string basing on a pattern.

val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

val alpha = fabr.alphaNumeric() // initialize alpha numeric module

alpha.numerify("###ABC") // 981ABC

alpha.letterify("???123") // LsQ123

alpha.botify("???###") // AbC329

alpha.getInteger() // random integer in 0 to 1000 range

alpha.getInteger(100) // random integer in 0 to 100 range

alpha.getInteger(200, 300) // random integer in 200 to 300 range

alpha.hash() // d750c843c83a3a980082361e72aa41ac48975eab

alpha.guid() // ed7592b7-11e4-5f7f-b83f-488733c8bc56  

Besides integer numbers it can generate double, float, gausian, string

Calendar

This module allows you to generate random time or time.

 val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

 val calendar = fabr.calendar() // initialize calendar module

 calendar.time(false) // 03:15

 calendar.time(true) // 15:15

 calendar.month(false) // December

 calendar.month(true) // 12

 calendar.date() // 10-02-2014

 calendar.date("dd.MM.yyyy") // 10.02.2014

 calendar.date("dd/MM/yy HH:ss") // 10.02.14 12:15

 calendar.date(calendar.year(), 2, 13, calendar.hour(), calendar.minute()) 
 // 13 February of random year with random time

 calendar.dateObject() // random Joda.time object

 calendar.dateWithPeriod(-10, 0, -2, +3, 0, 0) 
 // date that is - 10 years + 0 months -2 weeks + 3 days + 0 hours + 0 minutes
Contact

This module allows you to generate random person data

  val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

  val contact = fabr.contact() // initialize contact module

  contact.fullName() // Betty Corwin

  contact.birthday(25)//26.12.1989 (current year - 25 with default format dd.MM.yyyy)

  contact.bsn() // 730550370

  contact.eMail() // Rebecca_Kohler506@yahoo.com

  contact.phoneNumber // (792)273-4251 x012

  contact.postCode() //  44274-6580

  contact.state() // Alaska

  contact.height(true) // 188 cm

  contact.height(false) // 1.88 m

  contact.weight() // 108 kg

  contact.bloodType() // A-

  contact.occupation() // Craft Artist

  contact.religion() // sikhism

  contact.zodiac() // Taurus
File

This module allows you to generate random images and csv files.
For images you can specify width and height ( no more then 2560 px) and as a result you will get an image
that has text of it's dimensions on it. It's easy as :

val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

val file = fabr.file() // initialize file module

file.image(200,300, "drawing.png")  
// will create a 200x300 image in the root of the project

For csv there are 2 ways of generating files.
First one is by using specific codes that correspond to the methods that are available withing the lib. Here's the full list of supported codes :

  • integer
  • double
  • hash
  • guid
  • time
  • date
  • name
  • first_name
  • last_name
  • birthday
  • email
  • phone
  • address
  • postcode
  • bsn
  • height
  • weight
  • occupation
  • visa
  • master
  • iban
  • bic
  • url
  • ip
  • macaddress
  • uuid
  • color
  • twitter
  • hashtag
  • facebook
  • google_analytics
  • altitude
  • depth
  • latitude
  • longitude
  • coordinates
  • geohash
  • apple_token
  • android
  • windows7Token
  • windows8Token
  • word
  • sentence

To create csv file using this codes you need to do next :

val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

val file = fabr.file() // initialize file module

val codes = Array("first_name", "last_name", "birthday", "email", "phone", "address",  
"bsn", "weight", "height")

file.csvFromCodes(codes, 10, csvFilePath)  
// this will create a csv file with 10 rows, each of it has set of data generated by
fabricator methods and stored in csvFilePath  

In case you miss some code for your need, or you want to put your data into csv file generator, you can specify them in Set and then ask fabricator
to generate csv file with this data :

val fabricator = new Fabricator() // initialize fabricator

val file = fabr.file() // initialize file module

val values = Seq(alpha.getInteger(), alpha.getDouble(), calendar.ampm(), null)

file.csv(values, 10, csvFilePath) // csv file with 10 lines of data from Set will be  
generated in csvFilePath
