Name Generator part 1


So I found a list of little programs that I could make to better learn programming (actually from r/programming) and I’ve decided that I’m going to knock some of them off the list and work through them on my blog.  Because this is the first one in the series I really wanted to do it using just javascript.  This title has changed a few times.  I thought of going into creating a database and working through that.  I have also thought about creating a custom page in WordPress and working through that with its own template.  In the thirty minutes I’ve been trying to decide what to do, I have gotten no programming done.  This happens often when thinking about a project.  Sometimes, if you have some direction it can be better to just sit down and code and make your adjustments later.  And that is what I’m going to do.  I’m going to open up my editor and get working, and we’ll see the direction of the program whenever I come back.

So, from what I have figured out so far, an api doesn’t exist in it’s regular form, but I found an older version.  I’m not going to get into the details of getting something from github today, I will have to cover that in another blog post.  Anyways, Guy Davis has a repo on github called Baby Name Map and I’m going to throw that on a website and see how that works.
