SwiftRandom

Carthage compatible CocoaPods Compatible

SwiftRandom is a tiny help suite for generating random data such as

  • Random human stuff like: names, gender, titles, tags, conversations
  • Random data types like: Int, CGFloat, Bool, UIColor, NSDate, NSURL, element in Array

Usage

func asExtension() {
    Int.random(2, 77) // Random between 2-77
    Int.random(2...77)
    Int32.random(13, 37) // Random between 13-37
    Int32.random(13...37)
    Double.random()
    Float.random(3.2, 4.5) // Random between 3.2-4.5
    CGFloat.random()
    NSDate.random()
    NSDate.randomWithinDaysBeforeToday(7)
    NSDate.random(between: Date().addingTimeInterval(TimeInterval(-5*24*60*60)), and:Date()) // Random date between now and 5 days ago
    UIColor.random()
    NSURL.random()

    // Array Extensions
    var someArray = ["hello", "world"]
    someArray[0..<someArray.count].randomItem() // Array slice
    someArray.randomItem()

    // String Extensions
    String.random(ofLength: 16)
    String.random(minimumLength: 16, maximumLength: 32)
    String.random(withCharactersInString: "abc", ofLength: 16)
    String.random(withCharactersInString: "abc", minimumLength: 16, maximumLength: 32)
}
func asMethods() {
    // Return random Int >= 10 and <= 20
    // Example Output: 13
    Randoms.randomInt(10,20)

    // Return random Int32 >= 10 and <= 20
    // Example Output: 13
    Randoms.randomInt32(10,20)

    // Returns a random 16 character long string containing alphanumeric characters 
    Randoms.randomString(ofLength: 16)

    // Returns a random string containing alphanumeric characters ranging in length from 16 to 32.
    Randoms.randomString(minimumLength: 16, maximumLength: 32)

    // Returns a random 16 character long string containing the specified characters
    Randoms.randomString(withCharactersInString: "abc", ofLength: 16)

    // Returns a random string of length between 16 and 32 containing the specified characters
    Randoms.randomString(withCharactersInString: "abc", minimumLength: 16, maximumLength: 32)

    // Return random Double >= 10 and <= 20
    // Example Output: 11.511219042938
    Randoms.randomDouble(10,20)

    // Return random Float >= 10 and <= 20
    // Example Output: 17.0361
    Randoms.randomFloat(10,20)

    // Return random CGFloat between 1 >= and >= 0
    // Example Output: 0.622616
    Randoms.randomCGFloat()

    // Return true 30%, false %70
    // Example Output: false
    Randoms.randomPercentageisOver(70)

    // Return true or false
    // Example Output: false
    Randoms.randomBool()

    // Return random NSDate today > and > today - 7.
    // Example Output: 2015-10-08 03:55:09 +0000
    Randoms.randomDateWithinDaysBeforeToday(7)

    // Random Date since 1970
    // Example Output: 1997-02-01 15:27:08 +0000
    Randoms.randomDate()

    // Return UIColor. Alpha channel always 1.
    // Example Output: UIDeviceRGBColorSpace 0.645737 0.126625 0.52535 1
    Randoms.randomColor()

    // Return random NSURL
    // Example Output: http://leagueoflegends.com/
    Randoms.randomNSURL()

    // ==================== Fake Generators for Fake Datasources ==================== //

    // Return random name
    // Example Output: "Megan Freeman"
    Randoms.randomFakeName()

    // Return random first name
    // Example Output: "Megan"
    Randoms.randomFakeFirstName()

    // Return random last name
    // Example Output: "Freeman"
    Randoms.randomFakeLastName()

    // Return random fake name prefixed by English honorific
    // Example Output: "Dr. Megan Freeman"
    Randoms.randomFakeNameAndEnglishHonorific()

    // Return "Male" or "Female" as String
    // Example Output: "Female"
    Randoms.randomFakeGender()

    // Return random conversation
    // Example Output: "No! I'm tired of doing what you say."
    Randoms.randomFakeConversation()

    // Example Output: "question"
    Randoms.randomFakeTag()

    // Return random currency as String
    // Example Output: "EUR"
    Randoms.randomCurrency()

    // Return random (non-existing) gravatar as UIImage?
    // The image is optional in case of network issues
    Randoms.randomGravatar { (image, error) -> Void in
        // Handle the image/error
    }

    // For consistance behaviour you can create custom Gravatar
    Randoms.createGravatar(Randoms.GravatarStyle.Retro) { (image, error) -> Void in
        // Handle the image/error
    }
}

Requirements

  • Swift version 2.0

Installation

Install via Carthage

  • Create a Cartfile with the following specification and run carthage update.
github "thellimist/SwiftRandom" >= 1.0.0
  • Follow the instructions to add the framework to an iOS project.

Install via CocoaPods

You can use CocoaPods to install SwiftRandom by adding it to your Podfile:

platform :ios, '8.0'
use_frameworks!
pod  'SwiftRandom' #Stable release for Swift 3.0

To download older version you can use

pod 'SwiftRandom', :git => 'https://github.com/thellimist/SwiftRandom.git' #Latest release for Swift 3.0
pod 'SwiftRandom', :git => 'https://github.com/thellimist/SwiftRandom.git', :branch => '2.x' #For Swift 2.3

Install Manually

  • Download and drop 'Randoms.swift' in your project.

Improvement

  • Feel free adding your own random data functions and sending pull requests.
Possible features:
  • Random wildlife pictures (Should not include the image inside project, should load it from web when needed)
  • Make OSX compatiable and add here: https://github.com/AndrewSB/awesome-osx
  • Random JSON
  • Random Gifs (Should not include gifs inside the project, should load it from web when needed)
  • Random Videos (Should not include videos inside the project, should load it from web when needed)
  • Implement SwiftRandom as a protocol any class can conform to (Post.random() would give you a random post)

License

  • SwiftRandom is available under the MIT license. See the LICENSE file.
