    Will the real user agent please stand up?

    Get an up-to-date user-agent string, sourced from the most common user agents. To avoid each use of this module hammering the source, the data is now self-hosted in this repository, available via cdn. A simple local cache, invalidated every 2 hours, prevents extra requests. A data cap is implemented in the request. The local ua.json is used as a fallback in case the data is corrupt or host is unreachable.

    const userAgent = require('real-user-agent');
     
    // most common user-agent string
    const ua = await userAgent();
     
    // array of top 10 most common user-agent strings
    const topTen = await userAgent.all();
     
    // round robin top 10 most common user-agents
    const randomUA = await userAgent.cycle();
    const anotherUA = await userAgent.cycle();
     
    // 5th most common user-agent
    const fifth = await userAgent.cycle(4);
     
    // random user-agent
    const randomUA = await userAgent.cycle(Math.random());
    const request = require('request');
    const userAgent = require('real-user-agent');
    request({
      url: 'https://api.github.com/repos/fijimunkii/real-user-agent',
      headers: {
        'user-agent': await userAgent()
      }
    });
