What's Faker API?

Faker API it's a collection of completely free APIs that helps web developers and web designers generate fake data in a fast and easy way. No registration is required. No tokens, no authentication.

Every resource allows to choose the API language by the "_locale" parameter and also allows to select the number of rows requested by the "_quantity" parameter. Max 1000 rows.

Check the Docs to read more about every resource. In addition, it's available the Postman collection to use these APIs directly in the well-known client.

At the end of this page you will find the Test section, where you can test our APIs throug the specific form.

Current version: 1.1.1


No registration is required. No tokens, no keys or other types of authentication. Faker API it's a free service for every developer who want to use it.

Basic Usage #

Some resources allow to filter data by GET parameters.
The names of these parameters are always preceded by an underscore character "_", for example:


Data are always wrapped inside a "data" object and are always returned with the total number of rows ("total") and with the Http response "code".

Every resource accepts 3 common GET parameters:

_locale #

Default: en_US

This parameter means the language of the API response we want to get and accept the locale format "en_EN". For example:


This example returns people with french names.

_quantity #

Default: 10

Min: 1 - Max: 1000

This parameter means the number of rows we want to obtain and accept only integers. If you request more than 1000 rows (maximum) the system will return 1000 rows anyway. Example:


This example returns 5 companies.

_seed #

Default: null

This parameter accept an integer and allows to get always the same results. So, executing the same request with _seed parameter set to the same value (ex. 12345) the results will never change. Example:

This resource is the only one which does'nt follow the same rules of the others.
The 3 common parameters (_quantity, _locale, _seed) have the same usage of the other resources, but this request it's managed in a different way.

Request to this resource accepts custom parameters following this pattern:


where myCustomName1 and myCustomName2 are my custom parameters names, and customType1 and customType2 are my custom parameters types. See below the allowed types.

This allows to generate a custom ad hoc resource, using type parameters listed below:

'There's no sort of lullaby to it in large letters. It was so much contradicted in her life, and had to ask his neighbour to tell them something more. 'You promised to tell me who YOU are, first.'
