Model factories can be used to insert test data into the database. See Laravel Documentation for more information. The only difference si the class your factory need to extend:

  1. Create your factory, which must extend UserFrosting\Sprinkle\Core\Database\Factories\Factory;
  2. You model need to use the Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory trait;
  3. Add newFactory method in your model, returning your factory:
     * Create a new factory instance for the model.
     * @return \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\Factory
    protected static function newFactory()
        return UserFactory::new();
  4. Use the factory : $user = User::factory()->create();
