This post is to introduce one of my first project in COS, I created when started to learn the language and until today I'm keeping improve it.
The CosFaker(here on Github) is a pure COS library for generating fake data.
cosFaker vs Populate Utils
So why use cosFaker if caché has the populate data utility?
Ok the populate utility has great things, like the SSN Generator for example, but what to do when you have a field with a long description of a product? How to check if that table will list the emails or if that calculated property will count the days of the last user interaction.
For me cosFaker is a populate utils with steroids! You can use together with the Populate, to generate %Stream or long strings, or random Dates.
