Janky Lorem Ipsum placeholder text in agonizing high tech biz speak style, just like Bill Lumbergh would type!

Synergipsum

This goofy module returns strings of awful synergy speak, like what you'd expect to hear in the average tech startup pitch or pointy haired boss. Best enjoyed when read to yourself in the voice of Bill Lumbergh.

The module exports a SynergIpsum constructor with a create function; instances of SynergIpsum provide a generate function that takes an argument for the number of sentences of blather you'd like.

Pretty simple, but probably also half-baked, so use at own risk, without warranty of fitness expressed or implied, void where prohibited, you'll shoot your eye out, etc.

npm install synergipsum
node
 
var synergy = require('synergipsum')
var blather = synergy.create(7) // synergy speak with 7 sentences
blather.generate()

Maybe this will do more later, and the vocabulary might expand over time. This is also my first ever Node.js module, so feel free to offer suggestions, pull requests, and all the neighborly things.

I could not have made this module without inspiration from similar things with established vocabularies. I borrowed the majority of syngergipsum's vocabulary from the most excellent Web Economy Bullshit Generator.

Hopefully its output is as fun for you as it was for me to learn a little with. Speaking of which, I'd like to thank Pedro Teixeira (@pgte) for his fantastic NodeTuts screencasts, and in particular for #17, which was the inspiration for this module. :)

I highly recommend checking out both NodeTuts and Pedro's "Hands-on Node.js" book as well.
