Both websites and mobile projects often benefit from demoing content. But instead of spending your time slavishly copywriting, why not incorporate Lorem Ipsum as a method to generate filler text?

I’ve scoured the Internet putting together a collection of 40 intriguing solutions for content generation. There are plenty of text-based solutions along with some image placeholders as well. Most people end up sticking with 2-3 they like the most. But it never hurts to keep a variety of resources in your designer toolbox.

Web development has grown far beyond the typical HTML/CSS/JS code structure. Modern web services like Facebook and Twitter are built with something called an Application Programming Interface.
