Random Color Strings

  1. R = Math.random
  2. b = document.body
  3. b.style = 'background: black; font-family: sans-serif; text-transform: uppercase; color: white;'
  4.  
  5. setInterval(_ => {
  6.   if (R()<.9) {
  7.     s = ''
  8.     for(i=0;i<R() * 30 + 4;i++) s+=(~~(R() * 0xff)).toString(36)
  9.       .replace(R() < .9 ? /[0-9]/g : '', '')
  10.  
  11.     b.innerHTML += `
  12.      <n style="color:hsl(${R()*360}, 30%, 50%)">${s}</n> `+(R()<.1?'<br>':'');
  13.   }
  14. }, 100)

Make some random strings and give them a random color… a friend of mine showed a work in progress forked codepen – so I created a golfed version/variation…

W3Schools Output Tag

  1. <!-- from w3schools.com -->
  2. <!DOCTYPE html>
  3. <html>
  4. <body>
  5.  
  6. <h1>The output element</h1>
  7.  
  8. <form oninput="x.value=parseInt(a.value)+parseInt(b.value)">
  9. <input type="range" id="a" value="50">
  10. +<input type="number" id="b" value="25">
  11. =<output name="x" for="a b"></output>
  12. </form>
  13.  
  14. <p><strong>Note:</strong> The output element is not supported in Edge 12 (or earlier).</p>
  15.  
  16. </body>
  17. </html>

I like w3Schools.

This code has some problems… but… for a cool little snippet to play with – I think that’s ok. SnippetZone certainly has tons of things like this…

A friend of mine had this idea the other night so I coded it up…

Update: I forgot to mention, this uses this list of words from google…

Step Between Two Numbers

  1. const stepBetweenA = (min, max, steps) => 
  2.   Array(steps).fill(0).reduce((prev, curr, i) => {
  3.     prev.push(min + ((max - min) / (steps - 1)) * i)
  4.     return prev
  5.   }, [])
  6.  
  7.  
  8. const stepBetweenB = (min, max, steps) => {
  9.   steps -= 1
  10.   const diff = (max - min) / steps
  11.   const result = [min]
  12.   for (let i = 0; i < steps; i++) {
  13.     result.push(min += diff)
  14.   }
  15.   return result
  16. }
  17.  
  18. console.log('a', stepBetweenA(10, 110, 4))
  19. console.log('b', stepBetweenB(10, 110, 4))
  20.  
  21. const ITER = 10000
  22.  
  23. console.time('a')
  24. for (let i = 0; i < ITER; i++) {
  25.   stepBetweenA(10, 110, 4)
  26. }
  27. console.timeEnd('a')
  28.  
  29.   console.time('b')
  30. for (let i = 0; i < ITER; i++) {
  31.   stepBetweenB(10, 110, 4)
  32. }
  33. console.timeEnd('b')

Two messy implementations for stepping between two numbers… I am not sure it’s possible to make console.time work well with the snippet zone quick editor – so if you want to see the times… open your console.

Alphabet Array Golfed

  1. l=[]
  2. for(i=26;i--;)l[i]=(10+i).toString(36)
  3. console.log(l)

A nasty golfed way to fill an array with letters a-z.

I usually do (as seen in another post):

  1. let letters = 'abcdefghijklmopqrstuvwxyz'.split``
