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 "_locale" parameter and also allows to select the number of rows requested by "_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: 1.0.2

Docs

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:

https://fakerapi.it/api/v1/images?_width=380

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

Every resource accepts 3 GET common 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:

https://fakerapi.it/api/v1/persons?_locale=fr_FR

This example returns people with french names.

_quantity #

Default: 10

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:

https://fakerapi.it/api/v1/companies?_quantity=5

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 number (ex. 12345) the results will never change. Example:

https://fakerapi.it/api/v1/companies?_seed=12456

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:

myCustomName1=customType1&myCustomName2=customType2

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:

'No, I didn't,' said Alice: 'besides, that's not a regular rule: you invented it just grazed his nose, and broke to pieces against one of the moment she appeared; but she gained courage as she had never done such a neck as that! No, no! You're a serpent; and there's no use going back to her: first, because the chimneys were shaped like the Queen?' said the Cat. 'I'd nearly forgotten that I've got back to the conclusion that it might injure the brain; But, now that I'm doubtful about the whiting!' 'Oh, as to go with Edgar Atheling to meet William and offer him the crown. William's conduct at first she would have made a rush at Alice for protection. 'You shan't be able! I shall fall right THROUGH the earth! How funny it'll seem to dry me at all.' 'In that case,' said the Gryphon, and the other side, the puppy jumped into the Dormouse's place, and Alice was thoroughly puzzled. 'Does the boots and shoes!' she repeated in a coaxing tone, and everybody laughed, 'Let the jury."
