A Smart PHP Toolkit For Generating Filler Images & Content – Dummy

When designing websites and testing prototypes, we usually need realistic filler content to better guess how things will look like when the real content is added.

We can use Lorem Ipsum (or alternatives) and placeholder image services for easing the process.

Dummy PHP Toolkit

Dummy, a PHP toolkit, takes this one step further by automatically inserting retina display-optimized images in any size and text in any length/format with few lines of code.

Besides paragraphs and titles, it has options for inserting usernames, dates, author names or cities. And, for the images, you can ask it to insert avatars and banners too.

The toolkit simply make it possible to test how a layout will behave with images and content in different sizes and amounts.

    I like how the image has nothing to do with the subject.

    It is a dummy image generated by the library. Sounds like kinda makes sense.
