Build Status Latest Version Coverage Status

Generate Heroku-like random names to use in your PHP applications.

Installation

composer require atrox/haikunator

Usage

Haikunator is pretty simple.

use Atrox\Haikunator;

// default usage
Haikunator::haikunate() // => "wispy-dust-1337"

// custom length (default=4)
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenLength" => 6]) // => "patient-king-887265"

// use hex instead of numbers
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenHex" => true]) // => "purple-breeze-98e1"

// use custom chars instead of numbers/hex
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenChars" => "HAIKUNATE"]) // => "summer-atom-IHEA"

// don't include a token
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenLength" => 0]) // => "cold-wildflower"

// use a different delimiter
Haikunator::haikunate(["delimiter" => "."]) // => "restless.sea.7976"

// no token, space delimiter
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenLength" => 0, "delimiter" => " "]) // => "delicate haze"

// no token, empty delimiter
Haikunator::haikunate(["tokenLength" => 0, "delimiter" => ""]) // => "billowingleaf"

// custom nouns and/or adjectives
Haikunator::$ADJECTIVES = ["red", "green", "blue"];
Haikunator::$NOUNS = ["reindeer"];
Haikunator::haikunate(); // => "blue-reindeer-4252"

Options

The following options are available:

Haikunator::haikunate([
  "delimiter" => "-",
  "tokenLength" => 4,
  "tokenHex" => false,
  "tokenChars" => "0123456789"
]);

// get/set nouns or adjectives
Haikunator::$ADJECTIVES
Haikunator::$NOUNS

If tokenHex is true, it overrides any tokens specified in tokenChars

A small CLI application is also delivered in /bin/haikunator.

Use as follows:

$: ./bin/haikunator help generate
Haikunator, version dev-master

Usage:
 generate [--token-length=] [--token-chars=] [--token-hex|-x] [--delimiter=] [--nouns=] [--adjectives=]
