lorem ipsum generator mac

LittleIpsum is a handy app that will automatically generate latin text (the famous lorem ipsum dolar) directly from the Mac OS X menubar. It’ll generate full latin sentences, words, and paragraphs, and will even wrap the latin text in HTML tags, which is an extra handy feature for web developers.

LittleIpsum is a free download, you can get it here.

Generating random latin text is one of those things that developers and designers often need to do. Typically we just go to the web for this service, but it’s great to see it can now be done directly in Mac OS X which is sure to save some time.

    I like Loremify better. http://tobiasahlin.com/blog/introducing-loremify/

    It doesn’t take an extra menubar icon and it’s still very usable. (It’s a Dashboard widget, actually.)

    Does it tell you what the Latin text says? =P

    Automatically double spaces between paragraphs. Fine for online work but fugly for anything else. There should at least be an option to disable that.

    Lorem ipsum, after the initial sentence, is random pseudo-text, not Latin.
