Wet Pancake Banner


WetPancake consists of a .Net 4.7 library, a console program and a testing library. The purpose of this repository is to provide a way for people to generate random “placeholder text” -- with a Markov Chain. It does this by making the .Net 4.7 library available on NuGet and providing a console program which exposes the features of the library. The console program is a stand-alone one so no installer is required to run it.

Wet Pancake CLI

This project is a C# console program, using .Net 4.7. You use it by entering commands and awaiting the result. It uses Console.Waterworks to parse the commands so, if you want to extend it, I recommend you read its wiki. If you want to get going straight away, I recommend using GenerateRandomText. For more commands, you can either type Help into the console or visit the wiki.

Test Centre

This project holds all the tests for this solution. If uses a combination of unit tests (XUnit) and property tests (FsCheck). If you are unfamiliar with either of them, click on their links for more information. Also, all the tests are accessible in Visual Studio’s Test Explorer. This means you can identify failing tests with ease.
