Requirements

  • python (2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3)
  • Django (1.4, 1.5, 1.6) for django ORM suport;
  • SQLAlchemy for SQLAlchemy ORM suport;
  • Mongoengine for Mongoengine ODM support;
  • Flask-SQLALchemy for SQLAlchemy ORM suport and integration as Flask application;

Installation

Mixer should be installed using pip:

pip install mixer

Usage

By default Mixer try to generate fake data. If you want randomize values
initialize the Mixer by manual like: Mixer(fake=False)
By default Mixer saves generated objects in database. If you want disable
this, initialize the Mixer by manual like: Mixer(commit=False)

Django

Quick example:

from mixer.backend.django import mixer
from customapp.models import User, UserMessage

# Generate random User
user = mixer.blend(User)

# Generate UserMessage
message = mixer.blend(UserMessage, user=user)

# Generate UserMessage and User. Set User.username to 'testname'.
message = mixer.blend(UserMessage, user__username='testname')

# Generate SomeModel from SomeApp and select FK or M2M values from db
some = mixer.blend('someapp.somemodel', somerelation=mixer.SELECT)

# Generate SomeModel from SomeApp and force a value of field with default to random
some = mixer.blend('someapp.somemodel', money=mixer.RANDOM)

# Generate 5 SomeModel instances and get a field values from custom generator
some_models = mixer.cycle(5).blend('somemodel', company=(company for company in companies))

Flask, Flask-SQLAlchemy

Quick example:

from mixer.backend.flask import mixer
from models import User, UserMessage

mixer.init_app(self.app)

# Generate random User
user = mixer.blend(User)

# Generate UserMessage
message = mixer.blend(UserMessage, user=user)

# Generate UserMessage and User. Set User.username to 'testname'.
message = mixer.blend(UserMessage, user__username='testname')

# Generate SomeModel and select FK or M2M values from db
some = mixer.blend('project.models.SomeModel', somerelation=mixer.SELECT)

# Generate SomeModel from SomeApp and force a value of field with default to random
some = mixer.blend('project.models.SomeModel', money=mixer.RANDOM)

# Generate 5 SomeModel instances and get a field values from custom generator
some_models = mixer.cycle(5).blend('project.models.SomeModel', company=(company for company in companies))

SQLAlchemy

Example of initialization:

from mixer.backend.sqlalchemy import Mixer

ENGINE = create_engine('sqlite:///:memory:')
BASE = declarative_base()
SESSION = sessionmaker(bind=ENGINE)

mixer = Mixer(session=SESSION(), commit=True)
role = mixer.blend('package.models.Role')

Also see Flask, Flask-SQLALchemy.

Mongoengine

Example usage:

from mixer.backend.mongoengine import mixer

class User(Document):
    created_at = DateTimeField(default=datetime.datetime.now)
    email = EmailField(required=True)
    first_name = StringField(max_length=50)
    last_name = StringField(max_length=50)

class Post(Document):
    title = StringField(max_length=120, required=True)
    author = ReferenceField(User)
    tags = ListField(StringField(max_length=30))

post = mixer.blend(Post, author__username='foo')

Common usage

Quick example:

from mixer.main import mixer

class Test:
    one = int
    two = int
    name = str

class Scheme:
    name = str
    money = int
    male = bool
    prop = Test

scheme = mixer.blend(Scheme, prop__one=1)

DB commits

By default 'django', 'flask', 'mongoengine' backends tries to save objects to database. For prevent this behaviour init mixer manually:

from mixer.backend.django import Mixer

mixer = Mixer(commit=False)

Or you can use mixer with custom params as context:

from mixer.backend.django import mixer

# Will be save to db
user1 = mixer.blend('auth.user')

# Will not be save to db
with mixer.ctx(commit=False):
    user2 = mixer.blend('auth.user')

Custom fields

Mixer allows you to define generators for fields by manualy.

Quick example:

from mixer.main import mixer

class Test:
    id = int
    name = str

mixer.register(Test,
    name=lambda: 'John',
    id=lambda: str(mixer.g.get_positive_integer())
)

test = mixer.blend(Test)
test.name == 'John'
isinstance(test.id, str)

# You could pinned just a value to field
mixer.register(Test, name='Just John')
test = mixer.blend(Test)
test.name == 'Just John'

Also you can make your own factory for field types:

from mixer.backend.django import Mixer, GenFactory

def get_func(*args, **kwargs):
    return "Always same"

class MyFactory(GenFactory):
    generators = {
        models.CharField: get_func
    }

mixer = Mixer(factory=MyFactory)

Middlewares

You can add middleware layers to process generation:

from mixer.backend.django import mixer

# Register middleware to model
@mixer.middleware('auth.user')
def encrypt_password(user):
    user.set_password('test')
    return user

You can add several middlewares. Each middleware should get one argument (generated value) and return them.
