Django Eadred v0.2 released! Django app for generating sample data.

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

Django Eadred gives you some scaffolding for generating sample data to make it easier for new contributors to get up and running quickly, bootstrapping required database data, and generating large amounts of random data for testing graphs and things like that.

For v0.2, I added some helper methods for generating names, email addresses, sentences and paragraphs. It's definitely the case that these helpers won't handle all use cases, but I think they'll help specific ones.

There are no backwards-compatability problems with v0.1.

To update, do:

pip install -U eadred
