random-words

Generate one or more common English words

random-words generates random words for use as sample text. We use it to generate random blog posts when testing Apostrophe.

Cryptographic-quality randomness is NOT the goal, as speed matters for generating sample text and security does not. Math.random() is used.

Installation:

npm install random-words

Examples:

var randomWords = require('random-words');

console.log(randomWords());
army

console.log(randomWords(5));
['army', 'beautiful', 'became', 'if', 'actually']

console.log(randomWords({ min: 3, max: 10 }));
['became', 'arrow', 'article', 'therefore']

console.log(randomWords({ exactly: 2 }));
['beside', 'between']

console.log(randomWords({ exactly: 5, join: ' ' }))
'army beautiful became if exactly'
