    API

    The module returns a single function, generate(options)

    Calling generate() with no arguments will return an object:

    {
        raw: ['whispering', 'valley'],
        dashed: 'whispering-valley',
        spaced: 'whispering valley'
    }

    The options argument object can have properties

    • words (number) - Number of words generated (excluding number). All words will be adjectives, except the last one which will be a noun. Defaults to 2.
    • number (boolean) - Whether a numeric suffix is generated or not. The number is between 1 - 9999, both inclusive. Defaults to false.
    • alliterative (boolean) - Whether to output words beginning with the same letter or not. Defaults to false.

    generate({ words: 3 }) will return:

    {
        raw: ['harmonious', 'endurable', 'substance'],
        dashed: 'harmonious-endurable-substance',
        spaced: 'harmonious endurable substance'
    }

    generate({ words: 5, number: true }) will return:

    {
      raw: [ 'exciting', 'cooperative', 'legal', 'lackadaisical', 'blood', 4099 ],
      dashed: 'exciting-cooperative-legal-lackadaisical-blood-4099',
      spaced: 'exciting cooperative legal lackadaisical blood 4099'
    }

    generate({ words: 2, number: false, alliterative: true }) will return:

    {
      raw: [ 'elegant', 'experience' ],
      dashed: 'elegant-experience',
      spaced: 'elegant experience'
    }
