Random nodes generator for Neos CMS

1.0.0 2018-11-08 09:43 UTC


Configuration of the Node generator classes

In your Settings.yaml you can register a node generator class. Each node type used in your setup, must have an attached generator class.

        class: 'Flowpack\NodeGenerator\Generator\Document\PageGeneratorImplementation'
        class: 'Flowpack\NodeGenerator\Generator\Content\TextGeneratorImplementation'
        class: 'Flowpack\NodeGenerator\Generator\Content\ImageGeneratorImplementation'
        class: 'Flowpack\NodeGenerator\Generator\Content\TextWithImageGeneratorImplementation'

Minimal Generator Class

The NodesGenerators who call your node generator class, will catch NodeExistsException so you don't need to take care about that. The generator will skip silently nodes that currently exist in the content repository.

class PageGeneratorImplementation extends AbstractNodeGeneratorImplementation {

	 * @param NodeInterface $parentNode
	 * @param NodeType $nodeType
	 * @return NodeInterface
	public function create(NodeInterface $parentNode, NodeType $nodeType) {
		$title = Company::name();
		$name = Utility::renderValidNodeName($title);

		$childrenNode = $parentNode->createNode($name, $nodeType);
		$childrenNode->setProperty('title', $title);

		return $childrenNode;

Configuration of presets

If multiple Content and Document node types are configured, the generator will select a random node type for each new node. Take care to declare a generator class for each node type.

The Extension is shipped with some examples of presets, a basic preset looks like:

      # Basic website, with a multiple level page tree
        depth: 3
        nodeByLevel: 10
        contentNodeByDocument: 5
        documentNodeType: [ 'Neos.NodeTypes:Page' ]
        contentNodeType: [ 'Neos.NodeTypes:Text', 'Neos.NodeTypes:Images' ]
        # Randomness of the number of nodes generated from 0 to 100
        randomness: 25

Run your preset

./flow generator:nodes --site-node blog --preset small-blog
