What can you use the app for?

RandomText.me is a tool that allows users to quickly generate and grab text that can be used to fill in space on websites, applications and anywhere else that dummy text is needed. The text is used as a placeholder for upcoming content or used when creating a sample website or application. Users can obtain either HTML or plain text and choose between Lorem Ipsum or gibberish dummy text. Users can also generate a text query by using a RandomText.me URL (based on the type of dummy text the user needs). RandomText.me also provides access to the application’s API so users can add RandomText.me generation to their projects. Users can choose to download a .TXT or .HTML file, copy text to their clipboard or view plain text or HTML dummy text online. The application includes a pair of sliders that allow the user to choose the number of words and elements included in the dummy text. Users can also choose between paragraphs, un-ordered lists, ordered lists and headings.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

RandomText.me was developed by Dale Davies. It was intended to be a learning exercise for Davies, however he also used the application to quickly produce dummy text for his own projects. The original concept was going to require the use of a URL to submit a query, however that idea evolved into a full-fledged application.

The user can customize the length and layout of the dummy text they need as well as choose what type of text they would like. Anyone can quickly find dummy text that meets their individual specifications just by using RandomText.me.
