    Get a Buzzword Phrase

    Since I like to synergize backward overflow for upward mobility (thank you 30 Rock) as much as the next person, I figured this could make a fun if not at all useful node module. This is also a module I use for educational purposes and the occasional private git commit message:

    # ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ don't do this to people you work with
    git commit -m "$(buzzphrase 2)"

    As of 2.0.0, this module splits up the word groups into verb + adjective + noun and allows combining multiple phrases with a continuation phrase. It also now has logic to make each word mostly unique in the overall phrase. See below when called with 15 joined phrases.


    As a Global Install

    Run on the command line, you can specify the number of joining iterations (default 1) and a format (default '{a} {v} {N}'):

      buzzphrase {iterations} {format}
    ⇒ npm install -g buzzphrase
    ⇒ buzzphrase
    # same as `buzzphrase 1 '{a} {v} {N}'`

    synthesized transitional alignments

    ⇒ buzzphrase 1 '{v} {a} {n}'

    lobotomized bleeding-edge community

    The format method is also useful for testing new word additions with random counterparts:

    ⇒ buzzphrase 1 '{v} {a} consumption'

    repurposed organizational consumption

    ⇒ buzzphrase 2

    intermediated 24/7 convergence, leveraging distributed anti-fragile paradigm-shifts

    ⇒ buzzphrase 3

    enhanced incremental initiatives independent of reinvigorated extensible channels, which revolutionizes mesh didactic partnerships

    ⇒ buzzphrase 15

    concealed compatible paradigm-shifts, in contrast to emitted unique convergence, in preparation for serialized innovative abstractions, which revolutionizes e-enabled acoustic singularity, anticipating filtered didactic policies, independent of printed-out best-of-breed hardware, liberating leveraged reciprocal management, enhanced by branded digital pooling on behalf of virtualized zero-downtime #DevOps, which foreshadows upheld extravehicular normalization for facilitated polymorphic markets, which will enable printed multilayered communities, protecting against scanned organizational clusters, forging offloaded 24/7 virtualization, pioneering clicked asynchronous partnerships

    As a module

    import buzzphrase from "buzzphrase";
    // OR
    //const buzzphrase = require("buzzphrase");
    // get a phrase as a building block
    console.log("we are building " + buzzphrase.get());
    // -> we are building marshalled retroactive applications
    // custom phrase
            format: "{i} {a} {n} {f}",
    // -> embrace digital #DevOps for dummies
    // log a joined series of 2 phrases to the console
    buzzphrase.log({ iterations: 2 });
    // -> initialized cognitive paradigm-shifts, in preparation for iterated ubiquitous architectures

    Format Recommendations

    '{a} {v} {N}' - default

    retrospective digitized relationships
    adaptive accelerated markets
    shallow merged markets

    '{a} {v} {n}'

    unique routed projection
    sustainable filed touchpoint
    quantum initialized programming

    '{V} {a} {n} {f}'

    incentivizing B2B value-add as code
    popping-up frictionless partnership at scale
    evolving third-generation projection for people

    '{i} {v} {a} {N}'

    deliver merged immersive channels
    syndicate engineered all-purpose interfaces
    grow architected adversarial mobility


    • get(config): Get a phrase, with config options

      • default config:
        format: '{a} {v} {N}',
        iterations: 1
      • format: This is a string template that will replace the following with random words
        • {a} adjective
        • {c} continuation
        • {f} final (e.g. "for dummies")
        • {i} imperative verb
        • {N} plural noun
        • {n} singular noun
        • {v} past-tense verb (e.g. initialized)
        • {V} present participle verb (e.g. clustering)
      • iterations: specify how many times the format should be joined together with continuations ('{c}'). For example, specifying get({iterations: 2}) will conjoin the default format into {a} {v} {N} {c} {a} {v} {N}
    • getImperative(iterations)

      • DEPRECATED: instead use
          format: "{i} {a} {v} {N}",
          iterations: iterations,
    • getPhrase(iterations)

      • DEPRECATED: instead use
          iterations: iterations,
    • buzz(iterations)

      • DEPRECATED: instead use
          iterations: iterations,
    • log(config): same as get(config) but also uses console.log to spit this out into STDOUT
