Populator for Jomsocial
- JomSocial 4.x
- JomSocial 3.2
Creates fully functional Users, Groups and Events for development or demonstration purposes. Supports all Jomsocial versions from 3.2 through 4.3.3.
You need Populator for Jomsocial if :
You are developing a new site based on Jomsocial. You need fake data to test the functionality and the design. You need fake data to demonstrate the site to your client.
You are developing an extension for Jomsocial. Again, you need fake data to work with, to test, to showcase.
Would you ever create, let's say 50 users, 10 groups and 20 events, manually? And what if you needed to recreate them? With Populator the creation of Jomsocial entities (users, groups, events) is completely automated. You just specify the type and the number of the entities and press a button! Some seconds later you have a set of fake but fully functional data.
Note : Though the created profiles for users, groups and events have real and full functionality, they are not intended to pass as belonging to real persons.
Jomsocial Profiles :
Fully functional. They can be used to log in and act in every way a user registered by a real person would.
Male/female profiles with realistic names.
Creation dates, randomly chosen for each profile, not the same date for all. This is important for testing sortings by date, like the "latest users".
Avatar and cover images, automatically created. You don't have to provide images. These images bear the name of each user so they are distinct.
Custom profile types with custom fields. They are automatically detected. The created users are assigned to one of the profile types with equal probability.
Jomsocial Groups :
-Fully functional. They can be used to act in every way a group would.
-Group creators, randomly chosen from the users Populator has already created. Realism : some users may have created more than one group, while some others none.
-Creation dates, randomly chosen for each group, but greater than the creation date of the user who created the group. So we get a realistic simulation. This is important for testing sortings by date.
-Avatar and cover images, automatically created. You don't have to provide images. These images bear the name of the group so they are distinct.
Jomsocial Events :
-Fully functional. They can be used to act in every way an event would.
-User and Group created events. You can create both kinds.
-Recurring events, with varying periods (days, weeks, months).
-Event creators, randomly chosen from the users and groups Populator has already created. Consistency : if an event is a group event, then its administrator is the group creator. Realism : some users may have created more than one event, while some others none.
-Creation dates, randomly chosen for each event, but greater than the creation date of the user or the group for whom it was created resulting to a realistic simulation.
-Avatar and cover images, automatically created.
