    Default [Ext] Lorem Ipsum Generator V2.0.0

    When I moved from Firefox one of the extensions I missed was the "Dummy Lorem Ipsum", which made possible generate random text to use when I'm developing some apps or just a XHTML/CSS site.

    Description: Chrome Extension that generates random "Lorem Ipsum" text.

    It uses a minimalist and well looking design.

    Many other extensions of this type - in other browsers - simply complicate this task, using really extensive code, XHR, etc. The main purpose of this one, is to use the less amount of code (and also memory) and help the developer/user to get the job done.

    You don't need a bazooka to kill a rat, right?

    Screenshot:



    Changelog:

    2.0.0

    - Added a brand new GUI - much easier, get the job done with even fewer clicks
    - Refactored the whole code
    - Uses Browser Action instead of toolstrip (finally!)
    - Uses localStorage to save settings, instead of cookies
    - Uses the grids 960 CSS framework - I know it could be accomplished easily without it, but I decided to play with it for the first time and speed-up the process of alignment
    - Settings now appear as default value in inputs
    - Added "Select All" and "Generate Again" options - but you still need CTRL + C to copy the content - it just simplifies selection.


    1.0.2
    - (Finally) Punctuation is randomly added (you can customize in the array if wish - just do not add comma);
    - New toolstrip icon: All the area is clickable now, the background is transparent and the colors (inverted) make easier for the user see it;
    - Some other minor fixes.

    1.0.1
    - Added an interface to set the number of words per paragraph and the number of paragraphs (thanks to Waha for the save library)

    1.0
    - Initial release

    New version posted.

    Now users can configure it using an easy interface.

    To retrieve/set the cookies, I did use the save library which was created by our member Waha - did get from Chrome Gestures extension. Credits for him on this

    Oh, my bad. Didn't know Waha was "her"

    Did add the project's page now, in case anyone wants to request anything, report, etc, and to make things more organized.

    Firehalk, thank you for this extension. Can you please add a transparent image in a future release? It looks kinda weird... white image on grey background ^^

    Thank you

    Thank you
    Which image you mean? You mean the bottom bar, where all extensions appear? In that case, I guess it's some light blue, not grey (well, at least here)

    If that's what you've asked, then sure, no problem

    New version uploaded.

    Now it generates random punctuation across the paragraphs, the icon is better to click and view. Also, some other changes in the code.

    Updated.

    Almost everything changed:

    - Added a brand new GUI - much easier, get the job done with even fewer clicks
    - Refactored the whole code
    - Uses localStorage to save settings, instead of cookies
    - Uses the grids 960 CSS framework - I know it could be accomplished easily without it, but I decided to play with it for the first time and speed-up the process of alignment
    - Settings now appear as default value in inputs
    - Added "Select All" and "Generate Again" options - but you still need CTRL + C to copy the content - it just simplifies selection.

    See more info and download options in the first post
