sentence-generator v1.0.1

Markov-chain inspired sentence generator

npm version Dependency Status

SENTENCE GENERATOR

An API of 5 methods which provide granular control over the output of newly generated sentences.

Install

npm install sentence-generator

Initializing

(filepath: string): Object

index.js
import 'Gen' from 'sentence-generator'

const gen = Gen('src/content.txt')
// will resolve to Users/whatevz/project/src/content.txt
src/content.txt

Assume this is the contents of the file resolved at filepath:

I go to preschool university. We never talk enough about pencil sharpeners. Speak now or forever hold this for one second. It's a collection of paper bags full of plastic bags. This is what I like to think about when I eat dead leaves. Seriously, what's up with all those cookies? My grandmother never owned a rancid juicebar. That is a real homemade sandwich if I've ever seen one. I have to admit that I have never driven this car with my eyes open.

API

take(count: number): String

Returns a string of with a total of count sentences.

const a = gen.take(3)

console.log(a)
// This is what I like to think about pencil sharpeners. I eat dead leaves. We never owned a rancid juicebar. 

run(): String

Returns one sentence leaving any internal state unmutated.

const a = gen.take(3)
const b = gen.run()

console.log(a)
// This is what I like to think about pencil sharpeners. I eat dead leaves. We never owned a rancid juicebar. 

console.log(b)
// We never owned a real homemade sandwich if I've ever seen one second.

generate(): String

Allows the for the creation of a sequence in a manner similar to a for loop. Each call returns the current state of accumulation.

const a = gen.take(3)
const c = gen.generate()

console.log(a)
// This is what I like to think about pencil sharpeners. I eat dead leaves. We never owned a rancid juicebar.

console.log(c)
// This is what I like to think about pencil sharpeners. I eat dead leaves. We never owned a rancid juicebar. Speak now or forever hold this car with all those cookies?

clear(): Void

Resets any internal state persisted from previous method calls (such as generate or take). Useful with recursion an edge condition is met.

import Gen from 'sentence-generator'
import postToTwitter from './twitter'

const gen = Gen('src/content.txt')

function writeText() {
  const value = gen.generate()
  if (value.length > 140) {
    gen.clear()
    return writeText()
  } else if (value.length > 100) {
    return postToTwitter(value)
  } else {
    return writeText()
  }
}

// Starts over if the number of characters in
// the string exceeds 140 and finishes only 
// when the accumulated string contains a number
// of characters greater than 100 and less than 140

unwrap(): String

Returns the current persisted state.


gen.generate()
gen.generate()
gen.generate()
gen.generate()

// equivalent to calling `gen.take(4)`

const result = gen.unwrap()
/* Returns a string of four sentences */
