THIS README IS FOR VERSION 2. SWITCH TO 1-STABLE BRANCH FOR THE VERSION 1 DOCUMENTATION.

IF YOU NEED COMPATIBILITY WITH OLDER VERSIONS OF NODEJS, PLEASE USE V1.0.6 WHICH IS COMPATIBLE BACK TO NODE 0.4. npm i lorem-ipsum@1.0.6

lorem-ipsum is a JavaScript module for generating passages of lorem ipsum text. Lorem ipsum text is commonly used as placeholder text in publishing, graphic design, and web development.

lorem-ipsum is compatible with the browser, Node.JS, and React Native.

Installation

npm i lorem-ipsum

Using the Class

The class is the recommended way to use lorem-ipsum since version 2. It makes it simpler to generate text using the same options.

import { LoremIpsum } from "lorem-ipsum";
// const LoremIpsum = require("lorem-ipsum").LoremIpsum;

const lorem = new LoremIpsum({
  sentencesPerParagraph: {
    max: 8,
    min: 4
  },
  wordsPerSentence: {
    max: 16,
    min: 4
  }
});

lorem.generateWords(1);
lorem.generateSentences(5);
lorem.generateParagraphs(7);

Using the Function

lorem-ipsum version 2 exports a function that is backwards- compatible with the default function exported by lorem-ipsum version

  1. Users of version 1 should be able to upgrade to version 2 without any issue; they can just continue using this library as they did before.
import { loremIpsum } from "lorem-ipsum";
// const loremIpsum = require("lorem-ipsum").loremIpsum;

loremIpsum(); // generates one sentence

Like before, you can pass in a number of options to customize the output. The example below shows the default options.

import { loremIpsum } from "lorem-ipsum";

loremIpsum({
  count: 1,                // Number of "words", "sentences", or "paragraphs"
  format: "plain",         // "plain" or "html"
  paragraphLowerBound: 3,  // Min. number of sentences per paragraph.
  paragraphUpperBound: 7,  // Max. number of sentences per paragarph.
  random: Math.random,     // A PRNG function
  sentenceLowerBound: 5,   // Min. number of words per sentence.
  sentenceUpperBound: 15,  // Max. number of words per sentence.
  suffix: "\n",            // Line ending, defaults to "\n" or "\r\n" (win32)
  units: "sentences",      // paragraph(s), "sentence(s)", or "word(s)"
  words: ["ad", ...]       // Array of words to draw from
})

Using the CLI

lorem-ipsum includes a command line interface (CLI) program for generating passages of lorem ipsum text directly from your terminal. This CLI program is compatible with Mac OSX, Windows, and Linux. On Linux you will need to install xclip. On Ubuntu: apt-get install xclip.

Simply install the module globally to take advantage of this feature.

npm i -g lorem-ipsum

Execute the statement lorem-ipsum [count] [units] from your terminal to generate a passage of lorem ipsum text. You can additional arguments to the program.

lorem-ipsum --version
# Displays the version number

lorem-ipsum --help
# Displays the help documentation

lorem-ipsum 1 word
# Prints one word

lorem-ipsum 2 words
# Prints two words

lorem-ipsum 1 sentence
# Prints one sentence

lorem-ipsum 2 sentences
# Prints two sentences

lorem-ipsum 1 paragraph
# Prints one paragraph

lorem-ipsum 2 paragraphs
# Prints two paragraphs

lorem-ipsum 2 paragraphs --copy
# Prints two pargraphs and copies it to your clipboard

lorem-ipsum 2 pargraphs --format html
# Prints two paragraphs in HTML format

lorem-ipsum 2 paragraphs --format html --copy
# Prints two paragraphs in HTML format and copies it to your clipboard.

Uprading from version 1.x? The --count and --units options have been dropped in favor of the natural language interface shown in the examples above.
