What's New in This Release:
  • As of version 0.3 there is now a command-line interface to the Lorem Ipsum Generator.
  • By default, calling lorem-ipsum-generator with no command-line arguments will open the GUI. Calling lorem-ipsum-generator with the -p or -s arguments will generate paragraphs or sentences of text and print it to the terminal, without loading the GUI. Providing any command-line arguments in addition to the --gui option will apply the effects of the arguments and then load the GUI.
