As a WordPress Theme Developer, one task that is repeatable over and again is create fake data to test the our layouts and let me tell you, this task is overkill.
We need to copy/paste here; copy/paste there and at the end of the day we spend, literally, hours and this is not ok, fortunately, the WordPress Community is there for save our time and efforts.
Let’s add some data
FakerPress is a new plugin (2 months old) that help us with this tedious task, creating fake data offering to WordPress developers and user a simple but brilliant solution.
Whenever you create a new Theme or Plugin you will always need to create custom data to test whether your plugin is working or not, and as Developers ourselves we had this problem quite alot.
Our goal with this plugin is to fill this gap where you have problem with a good solution both for Developers and for Users of WordPress.
With a simple interface, now you’ll just need to fill six fields, and the magic will happen.
FakerPress allows you to create fake data for:
- Posts (Any Custom Post Type)
- Users (With a particular role)
Now create ten fake posts takes only a few seconds.
We know that when the site is ready to go live, we need to delete all the data, right?
FakerPress knows that too and as simple it’s to add fake data we can delete it as well.
You only need to type “Let it Go!” and click Delete! and all the data created using the plugin disappears.
Tell me, what do you use to fill your dummy data? please leave your comment below.
