I just had the need to generate some test user data and came across Faker. It’s a small Ruby library and it’s perfect. It generates fake names, email addresses, domain names and more. Light and easy to use.

    irb(main):002:0> require 'faker'
    => true
    irb(main):003:0> Faker::Name.name
    => "Fredy Bins III"
    irb(main):004:0> Faker::Name.name
    => "Chester Bashirian"
    irb(main):005:0> Faker::Internet.email
    => "cara@kuhlman.name"
    irb(main):006:0> Faker::Internet.free_email
    => "luis@hotmail.com"
    irb(main):007:0> Faker::Internet.domain_name
    => "grady.ca"
    irb(main):008:0> Faker::Internet.user_name
    => "meghan"
    irb(main):009:0> Faker::Internet.user_name
    => "cullen"
