faker.js is an useful jQuery plugin created for web developers that allows to automatically generate random fake data in the form fields depending on the data type you specify.

How to use it:

1. Link to the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery faker plugin's script:

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="scripts/faker.js"></script>

2. Add empty input fields with specified data types into the form as follows:

<form id="form" name="form">
  <input id="customer_fname" name="customer[username]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_mname" name="customer[mname]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_lname" name="customer[lname]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_email" name="customer[email]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_nick_name" name="customer[nick_name]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_city" name="customer[city]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_country" name="customer[country]" type="text">
  <input id="customer_address_1" name="customer[address_1]" type="text">

3. Initialize the plugin for auto generating.


4. Keep some input fields from auto generating.

  'except': ['mname', 'address_2', 'website']

5. Advanced usages.


  // maps address_1 field to street_address
  "customer[address_1]": "address.streetAddress", 

  // adds custom datatype along with the data
  "customer[nick_name]": ["Chaure", "Dalley", "Daure", "Bhyagute", "Gole"] 

  // restricts country data type to "Nepal" and "China" only
  "customer[country]": ["Nepal", "China"] 

6. Default plugin map table which maps the element names to the key for modularised usage for dictionary access and customization.
