Use Composer to manage the dependencies of your project.

In your project folder run:

composer require fakerino/fakerino='~0.8'
vendor/fakerino/fakerino/build/ods vendor/fakerino/fakerino/data

Like a stand-alone project run:

composer create-project fakerino/fakerino fakerino

Quick start

require ('vendor/autoload.php'); 
use Fakerino\Fakerino;

$fakerino = Fakerino::create();
echo $fakerino->fake('Surname')->toJson(); //["Donovan"]
echo $fakerino->fake('nameFemale'); //Alice
echo $fakerino->fake('/www\.\w+\.com/'); //
echo $fakerino->fake('nameMale')->num(3); //Bob Jack Rick
echo $fakerino->fake(array('nameMale', 'Surname'))->num(3)->toJson(); //[["Simon","Rodgers"],["Dean","Smith"],["Anthony","Bauman"]]

With a configuration you can __combine fake data__, or declare your __customs__.

$fakerino = Fakerino::create('./conf.php');
