Chance - Random generator helper for JavaScript

Homepage: http://chancejs.com

Many more details on http://chancejs.com but this single library can generate random numbers, characters, strings, names, addresses, dice, and pretty much anything else.

It includes the basic building blocks for all these items and is built on top of a Mersenne Twister so it can generate these things with repeatability, if desired.

Packages

Bower

It can also be used with Bower

bower install chance

then in the HTML of your app:

<!-- Load Chance -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="components/chance/chance.min.js"></script>
<script>
    // Use Chance immediately!
    alert(chance.string());
</script>

npm

npm install chance

spm

It can also be used with spm.

spm install chance

Usage

Browser

Chance instantiates itself onto the window. This means that in the simplest case you can just include the script tag then use an instance of Chance immediately.

<script src="chance.js"></script>
<script>
    console.log(chance.string());
</script>

More info

CLI

To use Chance from the command line, install it globally with:

npm install -g chance

Then invoke any generator by name, like so:

$ chance name --prefix
Dr. Georgia Sanchez

$ chance latitude --min=12.34 --max 56.78
22.01836

Node.js

And it can be used in Node.js.

var Chance = require('chance'),
    chance = new Chance();

// Get a random zip code
chance.zip();

RequireJS

Chance also includes an AMD define so it can be used with RequireJS.

require(['Chance'], function(Chance) {
    // Instantiate
    var chance = new Chance();

    // Then just use it:
    var my_random_integer = chance.integer();
});
