chance

Chance - Utility library to generate anything random

Chance

Chance - Random generator helper for JavaScript

Homepage: http://chancejs.com

Many more details on http://chancejs.com but this single library can generate random numbers, characters, strings, names, addresses, dice, and pretty much anything else.

It includes the basic building blocks for all these items and is built on top of a Mersenne Twister so it can generate these things with repeatability, if desired.

It can also be used with Bower

bower install chance

then in the HTML of your app:

<!-- Load Chance -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="app/bower_components/chance/chance.min.js"></script>
<script>
    // Use Chance immediately! 
    alert(chance.string());
</script> 

It can also be used with Component

component install chancejs/chancejs

then in the HTML of your app:

<!-- Load Chance -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="components/chancejs-chancejs/chance.js"></script>
<script>
    // Use Chance immediately! 
    alert(chance.string());
</script> 
npm install chance

spm

It can also be used with spm.

spm install chance

Chance instantiates itself onto the window. This means that in the simplest case you can just include the script tag then use an instance of Chance immediately.

<script src="chance.js"></script>
<script>
    console.log(chance.string());
</script> 

More info

Chance CLI has moved to its own project!

And it can be used in Node.js.

var Chance = require('chance'),
    chance = new Chance();
 
// Get a random zip code 
chance.zip();

Chance also includes an AMD define so it can be used with RequireJS.

require(['Chance'], function(Chance) {
    // Instantiate 
    var chance = new Chance();
       
    // Then just use it: 
    var my_random_integer = chance.integer();
});

Know a library that uses Chance that isn't here? Update the README and submit a PR!

Be a part of this project! You can run the test using the following.

  1. Install dependencies from package.json by running npm install
  2. Run the test via npm test
  3. Make some fun new modules!

Note: Formerly, there was a develop branch where active development would happen, but now it's all on master baby. Just submit PRs directly to master. Sorry if the develop branch going away caused any trouble, but it was time to rip the bandaid off.
