Ballardian Placeholder Text Generator
What is it?
Atrocity exhibipsum is a placeholder text generator - it uses the top 1500 or so most used words in J.G. Ballard's The Atrocity Exhibition to build paragraphs of postmodern gibberish.
You can view the demo at http://davidbiddle.co.uk/atrocity-exhibipsum.
Running it locally
You can get it by cloning the repo into the directory of your choice from the command line:
git clone https://github.com/DavidBiddle/atrocity-exhibipsum.git yourfoldername
Make sure you're running an HTTP server on your computer - the script uses an Ajax call to get the wordlist and you'll fall foul of the same-origin policy if you aren't, and then the next step wont work. All you'll be left with is a pretty webpage with a completely useless form on it.
Now just navigate to the directory where you cloned the repo earlier in any modern browser. Wa-HEY! You're up and running.
