A XOOPS module for generation of faked test data.


  • Read tables and fields
  • Based on field type the module makes a pre-selection of possible datatype (= output type)
  • You can change the datatype in order to get the data you wish
    • examples of datatypes:
      • autoincrement of table
      • random integer
      • random integer within defined range
      • running integer, start with 1
      • fixed defined number
      • random float
      • random text
      • fixed defined text
      • your defined text with running number
      • random yes/no
      • random firstname
      • random lastname
      • random email
      • random date
      • random date within defined range
      • current date
      • random uid of XOOPS users
      • random IP4
      • random IP6
      • random phone number
      • random country code
      • random id of selected table
      • random color
      • random uuid
      • random language
      • random value of custom list
  • Generate test data according the (pre)settings
  • View test data as table or yaml
  • Copy test data into 'modules/{modulename}/testdata/{language}' and load them in module
  • Update date fields directly in the tables
