Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'randomorg'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install randomorg

Usage

Before you can get your random numbers, you will need an API key. You can request one from here: https://api.random.org/api-keys/beta

Then you need to configure the module with this key in order to use the service:

RandomOrg.configure do |config|
  config.api_key = "YOUR_API_KEY"
end

After which you can use it in pretty much the same way as you would the SecureRandom library:

> RandomOrg.random_number(100)
=> 78
> RandomOrg.base64
=> "r1nwqJksqKacn26UBI1GkQ=="
