Package to generate random facts
Randfacts is a python library that generates random facts. You can use
randfacts.get_fact() to return a random fun fact. Disclaimer: Facts are not guaranteed to be true.
randfacts can either be installed via pip or via the AUR, whichever way you prefer.
Installation via pip:
$ pip3 install randfacts
Installation via AUR:
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/python-randfacts.git && cd python-randfacts $ makepkg -si
Usage and examples
import randfacts x = randfacts.get_fact() print(x)
will print a random fact like:
Penguins can't taste sweet or savory flavors, only sour and salty ones
This package has a filter option to filter out potentially inappropriate facts. The filter is on by default. To disable the filter, you can just set the
filter_enabled parameter to
from randfacts import get_fact print(get_fact(False)) # or print(get_fact(filter_enabled=False))
get_fact also has a parameter that will make the function only return unsafe facts. This argument takes precedence over the
filter_enabled argument. For example:
If you want to access the list of facts directly, you can just import the
all_facts lists from the randfacts module.
Command line usage
randfacts can be executed via the command line with the following commands:
Normal execution; only safe facts
$ python3 -m randfacts
The unsafe argument can be supplied to provide only unsafe facts
$ python3 -m randfacts --unsafe
The mixed argument can be provided to provide both safe and unsafe facts.
$ python3 -m randfacts --mixed
$ python3 -m randfacts --help
