Here’s a few examples to get you started. The project’s github page has lots of more advanced code snippets if you decide
Print 10 names to the console

Save 10 names to a list
import faker from faker import Faker fake_names = [fake.name() for i in range(10)] print(fake_names) #Console Output > 'Craig Taylor'
Print a fake address to the console
