Welcome to milkman’s documentation¶
milkman is an open source fixture replacement for Django testing.
Instead of maintaining scores of fixtures, whether they be generated, dumped, or managed semi-dynamically, it can still generate a lot of code that is not even test code. Furthermore, this tends to be brittle and hard to maintain.
The genius of
milkman is that it randomly generates data for all the fields
on a particular object, while at the same time allowing the test writer to
override any particular field with their own data when determinate fields are
needed for a test.
