Generate text for testing


#1

Any good-enough way to generate text for testing purposes? I’m building a GUI and I want to generate some crazy text to see if it can handle it. Should include new lines, tabs, commas, symbols, unicode, etc…


#2

Lorem Ipsum

Nice one, but it doesn’t include any tabs, symbols, or unicode.


#4

A quick search

http://generator.lorem-ipsum.info/

It doesn’t have tabs or symbols but you can you can select different languages. For tabs replace random spaces with tabs and random characters with symbols from a list

Cool, thanks for the help Paulo.

I guess I thought there would be some kind of package or function that generates n random characters from the vast universe of things a human might input into a (say) Gtk text box…

Not sure how comprehensive it is about various character categories, but maybe try https://github.com/codeneomatrix/Faker.jl

Wow, that’s an awesome package! I asked about unicode. Thanks!
