In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the visual form of a document or a typeface without relying on meaningful content.

The lorem module provides a generic access to generating the lorem ipsum text from its very original text:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.


Note that the lorem module only supports Python versions since 3.5 🐍

Simply run the following to install the current version from PyPI:

pip install python-lorem

Or install the latest version from the git repository:

git clone
cd lorem
pip install -e .
# and to update at any time
git pull


Usage of the lorem module is rather simple. Depending on your needs, the lorem module provides generation of words, sentences, and paragraphs:

import lorem


Eu consectetur ad et, exercitation fugiat occaecat exercitation cillum non ullamco, elit mollit est consectetur. In ex proident esse est aute est mollit, id minim lorem tempor sunt elit. Dolor aliqua non eiusmod officia esse adipiscing.

Please refer to the documentation for more details.


The lorem module utilised unittest.mock to patch the builtin functions from random module. Test cases can be found in Contributions are welcome.
