Lorem ipsum generator (using keyboard only)

Description from extension meta

Generates lorem ipsum text. Usage: lorem[number of words];

Image from store Lorem ipsum generator (using keyboard only)
Description from store I have tried a couple of Lorem Ipsum generators for Chrome, but always ended up uninstalling them, as they required quite a few mouse click to get the job done. Till now I usually went to a Lorem Ipsum website and copy pasted the text from there (I know using the extensions would be quicker :P ). But today I decided on making a simple Lorem Ipsum generator that works similar to Emments's generator, as it generates the text when you write: lorem50; I hope you like my extension. Any comments are appreciated (even criticisms). HOW TO USE Input: lorem[number of words]; Example: lorem5; Output: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. You can specify how many words should be generated right next to the word "lorem". For example, lorem5 will generate a 5-words dummy text. Note 1: This extension only works on input fields and textareas (this means TinyMCE visual field does not work, but works on the Text view). Note 2: You can freely hide the icon of this extension, if you have mastered the Lorem ipsum generation.

  • (2023-08-08) As a Dev, I love it! Great Work! Thought about building this myself and just found the perfect Addon.
  • (2022-07-18) Savage: It really works! Thanks.
  • (2021-10-28) Alex B.: Dont work with my Chrome (95.0.4638.54) @ Ubuntu 17.xx
  • (2021-07-09) IVN Studios: Thanks make the work I want to the inputs its cool to have it on the browser for test, I read a comment to autogenerate diferent words that could be cool too, thanks a lot
  • (2020-09-27) Moritz Pfl: Can't get it to work. Might be broken as it's quite outdated?
  • (2020-04-13) Michael Whit: Does not work at all. Typed "lorem5;" in a textarea and nothing happened.
  • (2019-12-20) Nikolaos Grammatikos: A really powerful extension you all need if you making proof of concept or testing sites.
  • (2019-10-07) Kalin Chernev: Nice idea and implementation. Maybe ability to tab instead of ; would facilitate things even further. Didn't work on some rich text editors.
  • (2019-05-24) Erik Molina: Isn't working anymore... Thats a real shame, it looked pretty good.
  • (2019-01-30) Andre Kendeck: Doesnt work
  • (2018-06-27) Dalton Rooney: This is a great idea but it would be much better in my opinion if it randomized the text every time you use it. Instead you get the same words in the same order every time.
  • (2018-06-04) Umur Karagöz (Lazysheepherd): You sir, are a genius! This is great. Have been using this forever now, came to pay my respect and appreciation.
  • (2018-05-28) Victor Vargas: No funciona! no dice como tampoco!
  • (2018-04-25) Lee: For mac users, this is work around is already built into Mac OS. System Preferences > Keyboard > Text > add a replacement > Lorem3 > insert your 3 words... Lorem5 > insert 5 words... etc. Now, when designing wherever you can just riff with this stuff. Further pro tip: i include unicode symbols like arrows. My shortcuts are |> for right carrot, <| left, |>+ up, |>- down. Your welx.
  • (2018-02-07) Hasan Tareq: Could be better to add option for paragraph. Thanks for the extension. It's really awesome.
  • (2018-01-24) Pedro Ribeiro: It works on fancy rich text editors and it is a breeze! I love it! I truly do.
  • (2018-01-10) Martin Desnoyers: Does not work in text/htlm editors such as Kendo Editor.
  • (2017-11-29) Miguel CR: It is just the stuff i was looking for. Like the author i used to copy from a webpage. And if the other extensions just enable you to reach the text in the same window but you have to C/P it anyway i don't see any advantage. PD.: it would be amazing if it write a default length text only by typing lorem; :D
  • (2017-08-11) Martín Moyano: Doesn't work
  • (2017-08-02) Jonathan a: could make random words, always start with the same words, eg lorem2; always produces"lorem ipsum"
  • (2017-06-29) Christoph Breidert: Awesome extension. It would be nice to choose different texts. For example 'Chuck norris ipsum' or texts used here: http://www.blindtextgenerator.de/
  • (2016-09-20) Billy Clark: Works perfect. The other Lorem Ipsum generators didn't work at all. Thanks a lot!!!!
  • (2015-02-19) Michał Gąsowski: Szybko i sprawnie. polecam
  • (2015-02-16) Mike Chu: Works perfectly. A quick review of the traffic via Fiddler shows no keystroke leaking. Thanks for helping make my e2e testing faster. Hats off.
  • (2013-08-27) Pascal Brewing: nice no copy and paste anymore
  • (2013-08-11) Nicon: works like a charm :)
  • (2013-07-09) Jeronimo Nuñez: No lo puedo hacer andar.

Latest issues

  • (2019-08-16, v:1.0.1) Usage in text area's and rich text area's like Redactor
    Hi! I absolutely love your extension! The only thing that is bothering me is dat the shortcut does not seem to work in text area's and rich text area's (I tested on Redactor). As a javascript developer I'd be happy to assist you on implementing a solution, if needed. Is there a public repository where I can contribute?
  • (2019-03-07, v:1.0.1) Elkin José Torres Martínez: Bug
    Hi, I've noticed that it doesn't work when the input doesn't have the type defined. By default, if the input doesn't have type, the browser automatically use it as a text, but for this extension to work in inputs, the input needs to have the type="text" defined.
  • (2018-03-15, v:1.0.1) Mahesh Saini: Does not work with Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit)
    This extension does not work anymore with latest version of chrome. In my case Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • (2017-12-05, v:1.0.1) Thabrani: Key to press
    What key should I press after I've entered the lorem5; ?
  • (2014-04-16, v:1.0.1) Roberto Bettin: console error
    With the plugin activated, on the console there is this error: Denying load of chrome-extension://ogkidppcbldhebgplkdmepodkbfanndi/jquery-2.0.2.min.map. Resources must be listed in the web_accessible_resources manifest key in order to be loaded by pages outside the extension. P.S. It's a very useful plugin, great work! Tanks
