Build Status Latest Version Coverage Status

Generate Heroku-like random names to use in your python applications.

Installation

pip install haikunator

Usage

Haikunator is pretty simple. There is nothing to configure and it only has a single method, haikunate:

from haikunator import Haikunator

haikunator = Haikunator()
# haikunator = Haikunator(seed='random seed') # optional seed

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

# custom length (default=4)
haikunator.haikunate(token_length=6) # => "patient-king-887265"

# use hex instead of numbers
haikunator.haikunate(token_hex=True) # => "purple-breeze-98e1"

# use custom chars instead of numbers/hex
haikunator.haikunate(token_chars='HAIKUNATE') # => "summer-atom-IHEA"

# don't include a token
haikunator.haikunate(token_length=0) # => "cold-wildflower"

# use a different delimiter
haikunator.haikunate(delimiter='.') # => "restless.sea.7976"

# no token, space delimiter
haikunator.haikunate(token_length=0, delimiter=' ') # => "delicate haze"

# no token, empty delimiter
haikunator.haikunate(token_length=0, delimiter='') # => "billowingleaf"

Options

The following options are available:

from haikunator import Haikunator

haikunator = Haikunator(
    adjectives=['custom', 'adjectives'],
    nouns=['custom', 'nouns'],
    seed='random seed'
)

haikunator.haikunate(
  delimiter='-',
  token_length=4,
  token_hex=False,
  token_chars='0123456789'
)

If token_hex is true, any tokens specified in token_chars are ignored
