What does Glitch do to generate names?

Hi everyone! I’m curious as to what Glitch uses to generate the random names (for example: steel-cirrus)

The reason I’m asking is because I want to make a project that generates random names that Glitch would be using. - Basically so you can explore random projects.

Any tips/ideas?

supposedly they’re sampled from this word list https://glitch.com/~friendly-words

I don’t know if there’s anything else to it. it’s probably (badum chhh) uniformly at random, with resampling in case of collision with an existing name. at some point they switched to three words 🤷


Here’s the package they use for getting said words. https://www.npmjs.com/package/friendly-words
