lcLipsumNow available for free download is my latest LiveCode plugin: lcLipsum. It’s a Lorem Ipsum generator and tool for LiveCode users and developers. It provides text to use when mocking up layouts.

What’s Lorem Ipsum? It’s the “fake Latin” that you see in mockups and preliminary layouts. (Actually, it’s not so fake. It’s an excerpt of a work by Cicero, sometimes rearranged a bit to look neater and cleaner.) Since it’s real text that is non-sense to most of us, Latin scholars excluded, it provides the appearance of “real” text without the distraction of actual meaning or content.

My tool is a little bit more sophisticated than most. It allows you to select the amount of text by characters, words, sentences, or paragraphs. It will also put an extra blank line between paragraphs if you prefer, and a few other things. Check it out!
