jQuery Plugin

I whipped up a little Bacon Ipsum jQuery plugin that uses our API to generate some meaty goodness.  When you’re mocking up a design, now you can use this plugin in your HTML rather than static text.

You can reference the plugin from our server or download it and use it locally.
http://cdn.baconipsum.com/api/jquery-BaconIpsum.js

The easiest way to use it is just to call the method with no options.
$('#placeholder').BaconIpsum();

You can also pass in options.

$('#placeholder).BaconIpsum({ type:'all-meat', paras:5, start_with_lorem:false });
$('#placeholder).BaconIpsum({ type:'meat-and-filler', sentences:1, start_with_lorem:true });

  • type: either ‘all-meat’ or ‘meat-and-filler’
  • paras: number of paragraphs
  • sentences: number of sentences (this overrides paragraphs)
  • start_with_lorem: true or false to start the text with ‘Bacon ipsum dolor sit amet’
  • no_tags: true or false, pass true to not wrap the return value in <p> tags
  • set_value: sets the element value rather than appending

There’s a sample page on GitHub with some example code.
