About

A simple package that I made to emulate the random string generation that Twitch and GfyCat use for their sites. I wanted to use the strings as unique IDs in another project of mine so I decided to try writing a package myself. In the process, I learned a lot more about the TypeScript, Gulp, Browserify, and module ecosystem 😓

Notes

Big thank you to GfyCat for the adjective and animal lists. Logo image is taken from OpenMoji 13.0
