Installation

npm install --save haikunator

Usage

Haikunator is pretty simple.

var Haikunator = require('haikunator')
// ES6: import Haikunator from 'haikunator'

// Instantiate Haikunator without options
// var haikunator = new Haikunator()

// Instantiate Haikunator with default options
var haikunator = new Haikunator({
    adjectives: ['custom', 'adjectives'],
    nouns: ['custom', 'nouns'],
    seed: 'custom-seed',
    defaults: { // class defaults
        tokenLength: 8,
        tokenChars: 'HAIKUNATOR',
        // ...
    }
})

// default usage
haikunator.haikunate() // => "wispy-dust-1337"

// custom length (default=4)
haikunator.haikunate({tokenLength: 6}) // => "patient-king-887265"

// use hex instead of numbers
haikunator.haikunate({tokenHex: true}) // => "purple-breeze-98e1"

// use custom chars instead of numbers/hex
haikunator.haikunate({tokenChars: "HAIKUNATE"}) // => "summer-atom-IHEA"

// don't include a token
haikunator.haikunate({tokenLength: 0}) // => "cold-wildflower"

// use a different delimiter
haikunator.haikunate({delimiter: "."}) // => "restless.sea.7976"

// no token, space delimiter
haikunator.haikunate({tokenLength: 0, delimiter: " "}) // => "delicate haze"

// no token, empty delimiter
haikunator.haikunate({tokenLength: 0, delimiter: ""}) // => "billowingleaf"

Options

The following options are available:

var Haikunator = require("haikunator")

var haikunator = new Haikunator({
    adjectives: ['custom', 'adjectives'],
    nouns: ['custom', 'nouns'],
    seed: 'custom-seed', // Custom seed
    defaults: { // Class wide defaults, can get overridden by haikunate(options)
        delimiter: "-",
        tokenLength: 4,
        tokenHex: false,
        tokenChars: "0123456789",
    }
})

// Same options are also available on the haikunate method
haikunator.haikunate({
    delimiter: "-",
    tokenLength: 4,
    tokenHex: false,
    tokenChars: "0123456789"
})

If tokenHex is true, any tokens specified in tokenChars are ignored
