Add "--force" and "--quickly" flags to `bin/lipsum`

Authored by epriestley on Feb 27 2017, 1:14 PM.



Ref T12319.

  • Lipsum can trash an install by creating a lot of junk that's hard to get rid of, so we're cautious about letting you run it. Add a --force flag if you're sure you know what you're doing. This makes the edit/test cycle a bit easier when actually writing Lipsum generators.
  • Lipsum normally sleeps for a second before creating objects, to give users more control over how much stuff they create and limit the amount of damage caused by mistakes. Sometimes, you want to generate a LOT of stuff because you want to reproduce a performance/scale issue (like T12319). Add a --quickly flag to generate objects as fast as possible.
  • When loading random users (used as authors, assignees, etc), also load user settings so we can ConduitCall with them.
  • Allow generators to return a PHID instead of an actual object (more convenient for Conduit-based generators).
Test Plan
  • With next change, ran lipsum generate badges --force --quickly.
