MySQL Datagenerator & import/export Free Download

Generate country-specific, real-life testdata and import directly to DB or export to SQL, CSV, PHParray or JSON

Unique features of MySQL Datagenerator (besides many other features):

1. Preview of examplevalues that will be generated.
2. Your local databases are automatically scanned.
3. Import directly into the database (rollback last import possible) or generate sql, PHP array, JSON or CSV. I intentionally set the limit to 300, when you want more rows, just click the export button several times.. (if you wish you can change the limit in the code to a higher amount)
4. You can save a current import and reuse and change it later.
5. It handles primary keys, autoincrement, unique keys and foreign keys, also multicolumns.
6. Countryspecific data for real localized values, such as firstnames (female and male), lastnames, streets, cities, countries, days, months (USA, Great Britain, Netherlands, Germany and France).
7. Many real-life predefined options such as surnames, firstnames, streets, postalcodes, emailaddresses, states, provences, Bundesländer, countries, telephonenumbers, url’s, md5, screenresolutions, colorcodes, mimetypes, fileextensions, filenames, IP addresses, INET_ATON, months, dates, years, timestamps, times, GPS coordinates, Lorem Pixel etc….

Working on

– time in range.
– export to HTML table.
– solutions for specific problems with tables which have columns which are multicolumn primary keys and at the same time multicolumn foreign keys. I know, it’s not very common, but i came across it and i want to make that possible too.
– At the beginning i used 500 values of the linked foreign table, but sometimes that is not enough. So now you can set it to 1000 in config.php. I want to add a third option: runtime_dbcheck. Runtime_dbcheck will do a search in the database instead of the SESSION with 500 values (or 1000)
