This tool allows you to quickly pick a random name, number or other item from a list of items.
Yes, the results are quite random. When you click Pick a Random item button, the tool will submit all text line by line to our server. Then it will use python random module to generate one pseudo-random number between 0 to total items. Then it will choose the item with this random number as a winner.
it supports email, phone numbers and any item in text. At this moment it does not "really" support random image picker. You can input the image file name to the form and pick a winner, but it can not display the image on the result.
Some users want to use the picker many times with the same list. So we use HTML5 Web Storage technique to make their life easier. With web storage, web applications can store data locally within the user's browser. If you use a public computer and do not want your names stored, you can use private or incognito window from your browser or submit another some Meaningless text. (We only use web storage to store the last submitted information.)
This Random Picker tool is designed as a PWA (Progressive Web App). You can install it on your home screen if your device and browser support PWA.
