Functionality to fill database with random test data


#1

During development and testing it is sometimes required to have a lot of data in the db and it is annoying to enter that all manually.
Would it be cool to have a functionality that generates random common data?

  • let a generator create standard pages or objects
  • Using external web services like http://loripsum.net or https://randomuser.me or http://www.json-generator.com
  • maybe add possibility to annotate preside-object properties to describe what kind of data is needed
  • have a generator UI to select object and/or page types and some additional settings (how many objects to generate, etc.)

I’d love to see that as an extension. Would defo require some effort but be totally awesome.
