DockerNames 🐋 is a port for Moby's name generation written in C# and available to the .NET platform.

💭 Inspiration

This project is inspired by the awesome folks at moby/moby and their idea to pay homage to great scientists and "hackers" when creating names for running containers.

📦 Usage

Simply add the DockerNames nuget to your project and use the builtin DockerNameFactory.Instance to grab a static instance of the Factory!

Then call either the Element property or the Build(char separator = '_') method to generate a new name.

var myFactory = DockerNameFactory.Instance;

var firstName = myFactory.Element;  // Using the shorthand Property
var secondName = myFactory.Build(); // Calling the build method
var thirdName = myFactory.Build(' '); // Calling a build method with a custom separator!

There's a sample available at the samples folder within this project, check it out 😊

⚙ Expanding

Simply inherit the NameFactoryBase and call it's constructor with two enumerables. One for the left side of the names and one for the right side of the names. Most of its methods are extensible!
