Have you ever needed to give something a code name? Perhaps for a project you're working on, or a new screen-name, but your imagination has let you down?
codename-generator to suggest some random code names.
It has a small dictionary of a few thousand inoffensive adjectives and nouns which are picked at random to generate a suggested code name. By default a screen-full of suggestions are made, so the larger your screen is, the more suggestions you'll have.
npm -g install codename-generator
See what's changed recently via the
CHANGELOG.md which can be found here
You can use the
--help option to list all of the options.
Default (no options)
Don't supply any options and by default you'll get a screen-full of suggested code names (based upon the terminal's row count via the property
node -p process.stdout.rows).
Or you can specify how many you'd like generated:
Lists all ~1870 adjectives in the dictionary.
Lists all ~960 nouns in the dictionary.
Enables Not Safe for Work mode, which supplements the usual inoffensive dictionary with a selection of the ruder everyday english expressions.
Switches off colour output. Useful if piping output somewhere which doesn't handle the unicode control codes.
