Data generators

Generate data for compatible drawer plugins.

Data generators are typically used as a simple means to prepare data for a drawing or for drawer demonstration purposes. In the latter case Data generators usually automatically generate some random though realistically looking data. From a point of view they may seem similar to Resource providers. Though there are significant differences. Data generators usually create data on their own while Resource providers rely on other parts of the system to get a resource object. As a particualar case, they can rely on Data generators for that. On the other hand, Resource providers may invole complex logic to get a resource depending on its specifics, while for Data generators it is as simple as converting an array into a resource object.
