Data Generator

My colleague and friend Mauricio (@mvgiacomello) shared a useful tip on Data Generation.

There is a web application that can generate test data based on a set of parameters. It can export the data on HTML, Excel, CSV, SQL and XML.

Their website has a demo that can generate up to 200 records. If you need more, you can download the code and deploy to your own server!

Here is what they say:

Ever needed custom formatted sample / test data, like, bad? Well, that’s the idea of the Data Generator. It’s a free, open source script written in JavaScript, PHP and MySQL that lets you quickly generate large volumes of custom data in a variety of formats for use in testing software, populating databases, and scoring with girls.
