Global Faker Helper Function Example In Laravel 9.x

We always use fake data when we create our software. In laravel we use faker to generate fake data. But this faker can be used only in seeder or factory class or in our controller if we used it.

To insert value:

DB::table('users')->insert(['name' => fake()->unique()->name()]);
