    objection-gen generates random data for Objection.js's model and other related models. It uses a model's jsonSchema and relationMappingsto generate random data and follow the relations respectively. Internally it uses json-schema-faker for generating fake data.


    Using npm

    npm install -s objection-gen

    Using yarn

    yarn add objection-gen

    Supported db

    • psql
    • mysql


    The best Walkthough is the tests in the repo. Checkout the tests to learn how it can be used.


    1. create(model: ObjectionModel, overrides: object, options: object)

    1.1. model

    It is an Objection model with jsonSchema.

    1.2. overrides

    It is an object used for overriding generated data. For example, create(Account, {username: 'ausername'}) will generate random data for all columns except for username.

    1.3. options

    Default value of options {followRelations: true} Set followRelations to false if we do not want to insert related models.

    2. clean()

    It truncates the tables populated using create function. Internally objection-gen keeps the list of dirty tables. One can add new dirty table using addDirtyModel function if the table is being populated through other means. After that clean will truncate those tables too.

    3. prepare(model: ObjectionModel, overrides: object)

    It returns the random data for a model but does not inserts in to the db. The data returned by it is flat which means it does not follow the relations.

    4. addDirtyModel(model: ObjectionModel)

    It adds a model to objection-gen's internal list of dirty models. Use it if one wishes to use clean() for truncating dirty models that are being populated manually.


    npm i objection-gen
