Our team often works on developing server-side scripts which sometimes have registration forms, large survey forms, etc. During testing our engineers might have to fill out a form 200-300 times a day, and this, of course, is a boring and tedious process ;)
That’s why we developed a quick but very useful jQuery plugin which prevent the developer from having to fill out the form manually during testing. It automatically detects forms in your document and saves your filling preference. The jFiller plugin also provides proper data for the different types of fields: radio buttons, check boxes, text inputs, textareas, selects, etc. The only field type we cannot provide automatic data filling for is the file upload field, but the reason is obvious, right? :)
And at the end it won’t require any modifications, you just include it and use it. When the debug phase is complete, you can simply exclude it from your HTML document. We like this automatic form filling script, and hope others will find it useful during development too.
How to Use
1.) Download jFiller script. The package already contains jQuery framework.
2.) Add the following code to your <head>…</head> tag to connect jQuery framework and jFiller plugin. (Make sure paths to files are correct.)
That’s it ;) Click the Demo button to see it in action.
