I created a content type "cities", with Fields: Title, body, location(text field)

I would like to create about 200 pages for this content type.

I can create manually one by one. It will take a lot of time to do that. Is there faster way I can add the pages by using some bulk load methods?

Use the Devel module, and its devel_generate submodule.

Using this submodule, you can perfectly create 200 nodes (with randomly generated content) of any content type.


You can create the nodes from a php array:

use Drupal\node\Entity\Node;
use Drupal\node\NodeInterface;

    $values = [
      'type' => 'my_content_type',
      'title' => 'test title',
      'body' => [
          'value' => 'test body',
          'summary' => '',
          'format' => 'filtered_html',
      'field_location' => 'test locatation',
      'status' => NodeInterface::PUBLISHED,

    $node = Node::create($values);
