// usages
chance.character({ pool: 'abcde' })
chance.character({ alpha: true })
chance.character({ casing: 'lower' })
chance.character({ symbols: true })

Return a random character.

=> 'v'

By default it will return a string with random character from the following pool.


Optionally specify a pool and the character will be generated with characters only from that pool.

chance.character({ pool: 'abcde' });
=> 'c'

Optionally specify alpha for only an alphanumeric character.

chance.character({ alpha: true });
=> 'N'

Default includes both upper and lower case. It's possible to specify one or the other.

chance.character({ casing: 'lower' });
=> 'j'

Note, wanted to call this key just case but unfortunately that's a reserved word in JavaScript for use in a switch statement

Optionally return only symbols

chance.character({ symbols: true });
=> '%'
