NOTICE: Repository Archived

As of 26.6.2020, Rant 3 is no longer supported and the repository is archived.

Check out Rant 4, a complete redesign and reimplementation of the Rant language!


Original readme:

Rant is an all-purpose procedural text engine that is most simply described as the opposite of Regex. It has been refined to include a dizzying array of features for handling everything from the most basic of string generation tasks to advanced dialogue generation, code templating, automatic formatting, and more.

The goal of the project is to enable developers of all kinds to automate repetitive writing tasks with a high degree of creative freedom. Join us on the official Discord server!

Features

  • Recursive, weighted branching with several selection modes
  • Queryable dictionaries
  • Automatic capitalization, rhyming, English indefinite articles, and multi-lingual number verbalization
  • Print to multiple separate outputs
  • Probability modifiers for pattern elements
  • Loops, conditional statements, and subroutines
  • Fully-functional object model
  • Import/Export resources easily with the .rantpkg format
  • Compatible with Unity 2017
  • And much, much, much more...

Examples

Liven up a narrative with a few simple queries.

<name-male> likes to <verb-transitive> <noun.pl> with <pro.dposs-male> pet <noun-animal> on <noun.pl  -dayofweek>.
Alick likes to mount shuttlecocks with his pet bat on Mondays.

Count to ten and spell it out.

[case:sentence][numfmt:verbal][rs:10;\s]{[rn].}
One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. Seven. Eight. Nine. Ten.

Write a poem

[rhyme:perfect]
The <noun(1)::&a> <verb.ed(1)-transitive::&a> the <adj::&a> <noun(1)::&a>.
The bread fed the red head.
The drug dug the smug plug.
