Random Nickname Generator

Random Nickname Generator It is a library to generate random nicknames and also allows some parameterization to be able to have defined structures, separators and more things to come...

Installation

npm i random-nickname-generator

Examples

Basic usage

The Hello World.

const {RandomNicknameGenerator, DATA_SETS} = require('random-nickname-generator');

const nickname = RandomNicknameGenerator.generate({
  structure: [
    DATA_SETS.ANIMALS,
    DATA_SETS.ADJECTIVES,
  ],
  separator: '_',
});
  
console.log(nickname); // => Eagle_Cruel

Own dictionaries

It is also possible to enter your own dictionaries.

const {RandomNicknameGenerator, DATA_SETS} = require('random-nickname-generator');

const nickname = RandomNicknameGenerator.generate({
  structure: [
    ['Sad', 'Happy'],
    DATA_SETS.ANIMALS,
  ]
});

console.log(nickname); // => HappyDolphin

Adding random hash

To add more random values we can add a random hash at the end of the nickname.

const {RandomNicknameGenerator, DATA_SETS} = require('random-nickname-generator');

const nickname = RandomNicknameGenerator.generate({
  structure: [
    DATA_SETS.ANIMALS,
    DATA_SETS.ADJECTIVES,
  ],
  separator: '-',
  randomHash: true,
});

console.log(nickname); // => Falcon-Brave-7c7df3f3245f

Adding time stamp

We can add the timestamp at which the date has been generated.

const {RandomNicknameGenerator, DATA_SETS} = require('random-nickname-generator');

const nickname = RandomNicknameGenerator.generate({
  structure: [
    DATA_SETS.ANIMALS,
    DATA_SETS.ADJECTIVES,
  ],
  separator: '_',
  timeStamp: true,
});

console.log(nickname); // => Fox_Wild_1659870130050

Customize the order of the parameters

So far we have seen that the structure of our nickname is very consistent and maybe we want to change the order of the random hash, maybe we want the timestamp to go before our structure... Let's see how to do it.

There is a list of tokens that we can use to define the order of our nickname.

Token Description
:structure The mix of our dictionaries.
:timeStamp The timestamp of the current time when the nickname was generated.
:randomHash randomly generated hash in hex.

With this list of tokens we can now define the order we want.

:timeStamp:randomHash:structure

Apply that to the code:

const {RandomNicknameGenerator, DATA_SETS} = require('random-nickname-generator');

const nickname = RandomNicknameGenerator.generate({
  structure: [
    DATA_SETS.ANIMALS,
    DATA_SETS.ADJECTIVES,
  ],
  separator: '_',
  randomHash: true,
  timeStamp: true,
  order: ':timeStamp:randomHash:structure'
});

console.log(nickname); // => '1659870130052_3f1365cb2aa7_Rhinoceros_Lucid'
