Quick way to generate dummy content?

I’m just starting to get into Hugo’s pagination and I’d like to test a number of pages.

Is there a quick way to automatically generate dummy content for Hugo? I’ve seen similar things for npm (eg dummy-json).

Well, you could put frontmatter and content into an archetype (like, a “lipsum” paragraph or two), then use hugo new to generate a bunch of pages. Once you’re done, just put the archetype back to something that would work better for the usual situation.
