Notes for updating to Meteor 0.9.0

This package is now called anti:fake.

Fake text and data generator for Meteor.js

From an article about Lorem ipsum:

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text (...)

And here's the problem: since Lorem ipsum is so widely used among developers and designers, it became recognizable and is as distracting as plain English text.

Random text doesn't have this problem. Every time you fill database with fake data, this package creates text randomly generated from most popular English syllabes. The result is a not distracting, random Latin-looking piece of text that still has frequencies and qualities of a typical English article.

Additional utility function allow you to create a fake user object.

If you need more functionality, like fake web address or geographical location, please extend the package and send me a pull request.
