Model Bakery: Smart fixtures for better tests

Model Bakery offers you a smart way to create fixtures for testing in Django.

With a simple and powerful API you can create many objects with a single line of code.

Model Bakery is a rename of the legacy model_mommy’s project. This is because the project’s creator and maintainers decided to not reinforce gender stereotypes for women in technology. You can read more about this subject here.


Model Bakery supports Django >= 3.2.
