Spice Up Your Lorem Ipsum Filler Text

10/10/20161 Min Read — In UX Tools

I have been doing a lot of wire framing over the past few weeks and thought I would share some of the Lorem Ipsum alternatives I am using. If you are not familiar with Lorem Ipsum it is a section of dummy text used to imitate user content in a design.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. – lipsum.com

The following is a list of the best Lorem Ipsum alternatives I have found.

Zombie Ipsum

If you’re looking for more BRAAIINS in your text filler.

Hacker Ipsum

Hacker Ipsum has some quality nerd vernacular and offers more flexibility by allowing for sentence per paragraph selection. They do limit max sentences and max paragraphs to 10 each so if you are looking for abnormally verbose text this will not be the text filler for you.

Bacon Ipsum

The meaty lorem ipsum. This generator offers meat, filler and even a spicy option. This generator is humorous but a little limited in options.

Fillerama is great if you need filler text that also contains styling [bolding, listing, headers]. I love the nod to Futurama and Star Wars

Hodor Ipsum

Who doesn’t love Hodor?

Trollem Ipsum

Trollem Ipsum is great for trolling Apple/Android fanboy friends. It does use NSFW language so keep that in mind before use.

Pirate Ipsum

Pirate Ipsum definitely wins the best presentation award. The interface is clean and intuitive. They even sell posters.

If you have a great lorem ipsum alternative that I missed, please add it in the comments and I will update the list.
