fake2db vs PostgREST: What are the differences?
fake2db: Create test databases that are populated with fake data. Generate fake but valid data filled databases for test purposes using most popular patterns(AFAIK). Current support is sqlite, mysql, postgresql, mongodb; PostgREST: Automatic REST API for Any Postgres Database. PostgREST serves a fully RESTful API from any existing PostgreSQL database. It provides a cleaner, more standards-compliant, faster API than you are likely to write from scratch.
fake2db and PostgREST can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.
fake2db and PostgREST are both open source tools. It seems that PostgREST with 12.5K GitHub stars and 585 forks on GitHub has more adoption than fake2db with 1.98K GitHub stars and 103 GitHub forks.
