Hackerman Quote Generator
Update November 2020
Because of the server costs we decided to take hackerman.wtf offline, which also runs the @hackermanwtf twitter account.
Hollywood and the media in general loves to portrait hackers as these beings that make computers do anything! They just have to type fast enough, or at least faster than the hacker on the other side.
In countless shows and movies, characters say a lot of nonsense to sound like a real badass hacker.
If you also want to sound like a badass hacker but struggle to learn the basics of computer engineering, don't worry, we got you covered!
We created this sentence generator to make nonsense hacker quotes.
Grammatically (more or less) correct English sentences mixed with buzzwords to sound very technical, but don't make any sense.
Why? Because we can! But also because it's fun and these quotes make great jokes and can be used as placeholder text and descriptions.
One more thing... just a generator alone would be boring, so we are hosting
a website where anyone can easily get their daily dose of hacker quotes.
Oh and we are creating an API for anyone to use.
(Who needs Lorem-Ipsum when you can fill your website with hacker quotes!)
Follow @hackermanwtf to get your daily dose of hackerman quotes!
Visit hackerman.wtf/api-doc to learn about the online API.
Local Generator Script
The magic happens in generator/hackergenerator.py.
You can just run the script using
That's not enough for you? Try
python3 hackergenerator.py 1000!
You are a robot? Try
python3 hackergenerator.py 10 json!
The script expects 3 arguments:
python3 hackergenerator.py [number_of_quotes] [format] [seed].
[number_of_quotes] is self expandatory (default = 1),
[format] can be
json (default = csv),
[seed] is a random seed string.
