Hi, My name is


How to use

You can use AJAX to call the Random User Generator API and will receive a randomly generated user in return. If you are using jQuery, you can use the $.ajax() function in the code snippet below to get started.

  url: 'https://randomuser.me/api/',
  dataType: 'json',
  success: function(data){


The application will provide you with a JSON, SQL, CSV, or YAML object that you can parse and apply to your application.

You can specify the format you want the results in using the format parameter.
