What is This?

See https://cogdog.github.io/permutator for a "stunning" demo where you can see maybe what "COGDOG" stands for?

This is github based SPLOT for randomizing the possible words to make up nebulous acronyms like SPLOT first done in a hard coded way at https://splot.ca -- GIF version here

Ah, but now we have a new twist. Rather than having the word choices being hard coded in a file, they are defined by json files in the /wordsrc directory on this site.

Try this reproduction of the original SPLOT mix

https://cogdog.github.io/permutator/?wordsrc=splot

and a favorite pal

https://cogdog.github.io/permutator/?wordsrc=felix

Specifications for JSON Format

this is rough now, needs refinement for sure!

The URl parameter for wordsrc= specifies the name of a json data file in the wordsrc/ directory so a file named felix.json is requested by the URL https://cogdog.github.io/permutator/?wordsrc=felix

To create your own permutator, you could download this repo and run from your own server. Then, make versions of the data files in the /wordsrc directory. OR... and even more fun, just add your own files to this repo.

Download a copy of an existing data file, modify to fit your own permutating message, and submit as a pull request. The json data fields are:

title: The main title that appears in yellow background: The background image; either local if uploaded to the images director or a full URL to source image attribution: credit for image, added to the footer allwords: an array of arrays for the word choices (see an example)

Ultimately, if I were a decent coder, I should build a tool that generates some json...
