Access true random numbers through the random.org API!
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install randomorg
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=="
