Introduction

This repository can be used as a third party library or as a standalone Docker application.

The main use case is to anonymize a database filled with user and customer data before committing it to a VCS repository. It will anonymize both WordPress base data and WooCommerce data.

docker run --rm \
    -e DATABASE_URL='mysql://user:user@127.0.0.1:3306/wp_mywebsite?serverVersion=8.0&charset=utf8mb4' \
    williarin/wordpress-anonymizer

Variables:

Installation as a library in your project

Usage

$faker = Faker\Factory::create();
$connection = DriverManager::getConnection(['url' => 'mysql://user:pass@localhost:3306/wp_mywebsite?serverVersion=8.0']);
$tablePrefix = 'wp_';

$anonymizer = new Anonymizer([
    new UserProvider($connection, $faker, $tablePrefix),
    new UserMetaProvider($connection, $faker, $tablePrefix),
    new CommentProvider($connection, $faker, $tablePrefix),
    new WoocommerceUserMetaProvider($connection, $faker, $tablePrefix),
    new WoocommercePostMetaProvider($connection, $faker, $tablePrefix),
]);
