Ever get tired of opening up lipsum.com, filling out a form and waiting for it to give you your filler text? Yeah, me too. I threw this together in an hour to generate lipsum text from the command line.


$ sudo gem install lorem


Usage: lorem [number] [type] (ie: lorem 5 paragraphs)
- Number defaults to 1 if no parameters given

$ lorem 5 # => will do 5 paragraphs

# you can do words
$ lorem 5 words
