Loripsum.net has an API to generate placeholder text to insert it in whatever software/webapp you want. Just do a GET request on loripsum.net/api, to get some placeholder text. You can add extra parameters to specify the output you're going to get. Say, you need 10 short paragraphs with headings, use loripsum.net/api/10/short/headers. All of the possible parameters are: (integer) - The number of paragraphs to generate. short, medium, long, verylong - The average length of a paragraph. decorate - Add bold, italic and marked text. link - Add links. ul - Add unordered lists. ol - Add numbered lists. dl - Add description lists. bq - Add blockquotes. code - Add code samples. headers - Add headers. allcaps - Use ALL CAPS. prude - Prude version. plaintext - Return plain text, no HTML.

Most generators only output paragraphs of about the same length. Sometimes you need lists, headings, long paragraphs, short paragraphs, etc. The website/magazine that you're designing probably isn't going to be filled with uniform paragraphs, so your placeholder text should reflect that. See More
