Tonight, I released version 0.1.2 of the Ripsum gem. This version adds a new feature to the gem, a configurable library of words. The user can now pass in their own choice of placeholder text. Hipster Ipsum. Zombie Ipsum. Harry Potter Ipsum. Whatever you choose.
This is done by adding an initializer file in your application. If you're using Rails, creating a new file in
config/initializers/ directory, perhaps named
ripsum_initializer.rb and adding a configuration block to the file like so:
Ripsum.configure do |config| config.library = "Your string of words here. You probably want a couple hundred words or more. Give yourself some variety." end
Restart your server and boom, Ripsum is using your library of words to stress test your designs.
