Installation
=============

**Mixer** should be installed using pip: ::

pip install mixer


.. _usage:

Usage
=====

| By default Mixer tries to generate a fake (human-friendly) data.
| If you want randomize the generated values initialize the Mixer
| by manual: Mixer(fake=False)


| By default Mixer saves the 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 a random user
user = mixer.blend(User)

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

# Generate an UserMessage and an User. Set username for generated user 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 money field from default to random
some = mixer.blend('someapp.somemodel', money=mixer.RANDOM)

# Generate 5 SomeModel's instances and take company field's values from custom generator
some_models = mixer.cycle(5).blend('somemodel', company=(name for name in company_names))


Flask, Flask-SQLAlchemy
-----------------------
Quick example: ::

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

mixer.init_app(self.app)

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

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

# Generate an UserMessage and an User. Set username for generated user 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 money field from default to random
some = mixer.blend('project.models.SomeModel', money=mixer.RANDOM)

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


Support for Flask-SQLAlchemy models that have `__init__` arguments
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

For support this scheme, just create your own mixer class, like this: ::

from mixer.backend.sqlalchemy import Mixer

class MyOwnMixer(Mixer):

def populate_target(self, values):
target = self.__scheme(**values)
return target

mixer = MyOwnMixer()


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 in
database. For prevent this behaviour init `mixer` manually: ::

from mixer.backend.django import Mixer

mixer = Mixer(commit=False)


Or you can temporary switch context use the mixer as context manager: ::

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:

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'
isinstancetest.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:

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.

Locales
-------

By default mixer uses 'en' locale. You could switch mixer default locale by
creating your own mixer: ::

from mixer.backend.django import Mixer

mixer = Mixer(locale='it')
mixer.faker.name() ## u'Acchisio Conte'

At any time you could switch mixer current locale: ::

mixer.faker.locale = 'cz'
mixer.faker.name() ## u'Miloslava Urbanov\xe1 CSc.'

mixer.faker.locale = 'en'
mixer.faker.name() ## u'John Black'

# Use the mixer context manager
mixer.faker.phone() ## u'1-438-238-1116'
with mixer.ctx(locale='fr'):
mixer.faker.phone() ## u'08 64 92 11 79'

mixer.faker.phone() ## u'1-438-238-1116'
