markov-chains-text

Fake text, powered by Markov chains

npm version


markov-chains-text is a simple, Markov chain-based text generator written in JavaScript, and designed for both Node and the browser. It can be used to generate random sentences modeled after a large corpus of text.

Table of Contents


Example

import { readFileSync } from 'fs';
import path from 'path';
import Text from 'markov-chains-text';

const MobyDick = readFileSync(path.join(__dirname, 'moby-dick.txt'));

// build the generator
const fakeMobyDick = new Text(MobyDick);

// generate a sentence
const sentence = fakeMobyDick.makeSentence();

console.log(sentence);

// Example output:
//
//   And as the Porpoise is the harpooneer might be his immediate purpose,
//   touching his own kith and kin to noble Benjamin--this day darting the
//   barbed iron from one to the captain dared not attempt, he snatched the
//   rope attached to it--for they were humbug.
