yy-random

yet another javascript random number API with seeded number support

Code Example

const Random = require('yy-random')

// returns a random integer from 0 - 9
Random.get(10)

// returns a random float for 0 - 2
Random.get(2, true)

// changes the generator from Math.random() to a seeded random function
Random.seed(100)

// returns a random integer between 5 - 20 (including 5 and 20)
// this will return the same number each time because of the Random.seed(100) call
Random.range(5, 20) 

Installation

include yy-random in your project or add to your workflow

npm i yy-random

Rationale

I use lots of random numbers in my game. I created this library to make it easier to generate the perfect number for as many scenarios as possible. The library has almost complete test code coverage.

API

    /**
     * generates a seeded number
     * @param {number} seed
     * @param {object} [options]
     * @param {string} [PRNG="alea"] - name of algorithm, see https://github.com/davidbau/seedrandom
     * @param {(boolean|string)} [state] - can include the state returned from save()
     */
    seed(seed, options) {

    /**
     * saves the state of the random generator
     * can only be used after Random.seed() is called with options.state = true
     * @returns {number} state
     */
    save() {

    /**
     * restores the state of the random generator
