Bob Ross Ipsum

There is a “Lorem ipsum” generator built into Emmet, which we enable by default on CodePen. So if you type lorem– Tab, you will have some.

Good to know: you can customize the amount you withdraw by adding numbers. lorem10 is just 10 words of filler text. lorem1000 is 1,000 words of filler text.

Lorem ipsum is just gibberish (it’s not really latin!) and the point is to put placeholder text in place when whatever it says, you’re just designing something. If it’s actual text at some point, it’s probably a good idea to get your hands on that actual text, but alas, sometimes a placeholder copy will do.

Someone asked me today if any of the “other” filler text generators could be used on CodePen. Others? Lots of fun, actually. A few of my favorites: Ipsum cupcake, Ipsum with baconand Samuel L. Ipsum. Their favourite? Bob Ross Lipsum.

So, can you create a happy little filler text on CodePen? Sure, and you can make it happen yourself using custom code snippets. The trick is to head towards your editor settings and add a brand new HTML snippet.

Added two excerpts from Bob Ross

To avoid any text weirdness, I wrap the text in braces and escape the quotes.

{Hello, World! It[backslash]'s a nice day out.}

And then, KAPOW, we have options.
