RandomType

RandomType is a C# class library to generate random models/types

Ideal to generate data for tests, or test application fragility, in relation to the entry of the most diverse values

Installation

With package manager console, run:

Install-Package RandomType

The code above will install the latest release, and all dependencies needed

Getting Started

Nothing complicated here, simply a line to generate a random model

var randomModel = RandomTypeGenerator.Generate<YourType>();

If you need a list

var randomModel = RandomTypeGenerator.GenerateList<YourType>();

The code above will create a list with a random number of elements, within the configured limits. To understand how to configure, just read the section below

And if you need, that works as well

var randomModel = RandomTypeGenerator.Generate<int>();

Range settings

If you need more specific random values, you can set the minimum and maximum values for some data types

var randomModel = RandomTypeGenerator.GenerateList<YourType>(settings =>
{
  settings.Min.Int32 = 1;
  settings.Max.Int32 = 50;
				
  //Number of chars
  settings.Min.String = 5;
  settings.Max.String = 30;

  settings.Min.ListSize = 0;
  settings.Max.ListSize = 50;
});

These are just a few examples of the settings that can be made

Property Types

Not all types are available yet, are being implemented over time. Below are all types that are ready:

  • String
  • Int32
  • Bool
  • Double
  • Date
  • Decimal
  • Int64
  • TimeSpan
  • Byte
  • Char
  • Float
  • Enum
  • Array & collections
  • Dictionary (new)

If the model has other models inside it, or lists, they will also be generated randomly

Contributing

If you feel the need for new types, or find a bug

  1. Pull requests are always welcome (you can fork the repository aswell)
  2. Issues created will help me to set some priority
