Handy Lorem Ipsum Placeholder HTML5 Web Component

HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript

The Fine Art of Web Development by Martin Ivanov

Tired of copy-pasting the same lorem ipsum text anytime you start a new web project? If you are, you will definitely love <acidjs-xlipsum></acidjs-xlipsum>, because it will do this and much more. Utilizing the excellent Loripsum API, developed by twokings.nl, the tag will generate not only plain text, but also headers, links, lists – you name it. Just like this:

[sourcecode language=”html”]

<acidjs-xlipsum show="link, ol, ul, allcaps"></acidjs-xlipsum>
<acidjs-xlipsum show="plaintext, prude"></acidjs-xlipsum>
