Faker is a package that generates random fake data for you.
To use it simply create a new faker object and then call a subclass & method.
<?php // Do this so it can find the classes needed include( 'faker.php' ); // Create new faker object $faker = new Faker; // Output a random name echo $faker->Name->name; ?>
You only need to include
faker.php as it includes all the files under lib/ automatically as they are needed.
