Quickly look up Faker methods without leaving your terminal!


:book: Code Documentation


$ gem install faker-bot


1.) Run a quick lookup

$ faker search name
# Faker::SwordArtOnline
# └── real_name
# └── game_name
# Faker::Superhero

# ....

2.) List methods

$ faker list
# Faker::BackToTheFuture

# Faker::UmphreysMcgee
# └── song=> Headphones & Snowcones
$ faker search name -v
# Faker::App
