Project description


This library is used to generate random user profiles with Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

tests/ script generates user identities in the following way:

$ python3 tests/

The script generates random Personally Identifiable Information (PII):

A developer may generate a random U.S. postal address, or may choose to specify extra parameters, e.g. state, city, county, or zipcode. However, the street address in PostalAddress() class will unlikely match a real address from that zipcode or city, because the address generation does not rely on a geo-location service of any kind.

from pyidgen import PostalAddress;
from string import Template;

def main():
    a = PostalAddress();
    if a.Address2 == '':
        template = "{0}\n{2}, {3} {4}";
        template = "{0}\n{1}\n{2}, {3} {4}";
    print(template.format(a.Address1, a.Address2, a.City, a.State, a.ZipCode));

if __name__ == '__main__':

There are a few ways to create PostalAddress() object:

a = PostalAddress();
a = PostalAddress(zip="11364");
a = PostalAddress(county="Queens");
a = PostalAddress(county="Queens",zip="11363");
a = PostalAddress(state="NY");
a = PostalAddress("11364");
a = PostalAddress("11364", None, "Queens", "NY");
a = PostalAddress(None, None, "Queens", None);
a = PostalAddress(None, None, None, "NY");

The expected output is:

9205 Shadow Lake Dr
Oakland Gardens, NY 11364

4957 Robert J Miller Air Park
Oakland Gardens, NY 11364

4485 Greenhill Dr
Suite 919
Truxton, NY 13158

8731 County Route 17/2
Arverne, NY 11692

8463 Westmont Rd
Jamaica, NY 11451
