nayme - a Fantasy Name Generator
nayme is (yet) another Fantasy Name Generator.
While waiting for an answer to a proposal for including the parser described in Fantasy Name Generator - a parser into fantasyname (see issue Interested in a better Perl version?), I’ve decided to publish the code in a slightly more polished form.
nayme just requires Perl 5.024 or later to run. It should not be an issue because… heck, we’re in 2020 as of this writing!
Just a few usage examples:
# list available templates (only internal ones) nayme --list # list available templates (internal & in file "definitions.json") nayme -f definitions.json -l # generate 20 fake "Greek" names nayme --count 20 --template GREEK_NAMES # generate 1 fantasy name according to the specification nayme -s "BV(|||'|-)Cs"
For the details, you’re invited to read the README.md file, it’s not big and should get you up to speed in no time. Enjoy!
