Tabulify - How to generate a sequence of numbers

About

This how-to shows you how to generate an integer sequence (1,2,3,…) with the column sequence generator.

Steps

Creation of the generator file

To generate data, you need to create a generator file that will describe the data to be generated.

The below data resource generator:

  • has the name sequence_number–datagen.yml
  • has the logical name sequence_number
  • will generate 14 values (MaxRecordCount count)
  • has a column named id that has sequence data generator that:
    • starts by default at the value 1
    • increments by default with the value 1
  • has a column named seq_int with the integer data type that has sequence data generator that:
    • start with the value 3
    • increments every 2 digits (the step value)
    • generates 5 values (the maxTick value)
  • has a column named seq_float with the float data type that has sequence data generator that:
    • start with the value 1 (default)
    • increments every 0.5 digits (the step value)
MaxRecordCount: 14
Columns:
  - name: id
    type: integer
    comment: A id column to see easily the number of values generated
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
  - name: seq_int
    type: integer
    comment: A column with a complex sequence integer generator
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
      start: 3
      step: 2
      maxTick: 5
  - name: seq_float
    type: float
    comment: A column with a float sequence generator
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
      step: 0.5
  - name: seq_double
    type: double
    comment: A column with a double sequence generator
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
      start: 10
      step: 0.75
  - name: seq_numeric
    scale: 2
    type: numeric
    comment: A column with a numeric sequence generator
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
      start: 3
      step: 0.255
  - name: seq_decimal
    scale: 2
    type: decimal
    comment: A column with a decimal sequence generator
    DataGenerator:
      type: sequence
      start: 3
      step: 0.255

Printing the data

With the data print command, we can print the 14 values generated.
