Project Idea: Random Jokes Generator

API Used: JokeAPI (https://jokeapi.dev/)

Description: This project will generate random jokes from the JokeAPI and display them in the console. The user can select the type of joke they want (e.g. programming, dark, pun, etc.) and the number of jokes they want to generate.

Steps to create the project:

  1. Sign up for a free API key from the JokeAPI website.
  2. Install the requests module in Python using pip. This module will be used to make requests to the API and retrieve the joke data.
  3. Write a function to make a request to the API and retrieve a random joke. The function should take in parameters for the type of joke and the number of jokes to retrieve.
  4. Write a main function that prompts the user for the type of joke and the number of jokes they want to generate. The main function should call the random joke function and display the jokes in the console.
  5. Test the program to make sure it is generating random jokes correctly.

Here’s some sample code to get you started:

import requests

import json

 

# Function to retrieve random jokes from JokeAPI

def get_random_jokes(joke_type, num_jokes):

    url = f”https://v2.jokeapi.dev/joke/{joke_type}?amount={num_jokes}”

    response = requests.get(url)

    data = json.loads(response.text)

    jokes = []

    for item in data[‘jokes’]:

        if item[‘type’] == ‘single’:

            jokes.append(item[‘joke’])

        else:

            jokes.append(item[‘setup’] + ” ” + item[‘delivery’])

    return jokes

 

# Main function to prompt user for input and generate jokes

def main():

    joke_type = input(“What type of joke do you want? (programming, dark, pun, etc.): “)

    num_jokes = int(input(“How many jokes do you want to generate?: “))

    jokes = get_random_jokes(joke_type, num_jokes)

    for joke in jokes:

        print(joke)

 

if __name__ == “__main__”:

    main()

 

This code will generate output as:

 

 

To turn this project into a standalone application, you can use a GUI framework such as Tkinter, PyQt, or wxPython. In this example, we’ll use Tkinter to create a simple GUI for the joke generator.

Here are the steps to create an application using Tkinter:

  1. Install Tkinter (if not already installed) using pip.
  2. Import the necessary modules for the GUI and the joke generator.
  3. Create a new class for the GUI and add the necessary widgets (labels, buttons, entry boxes) to the window.
  4. Write a function to retrieve the input values from the GUI widgets and call the joke generator function.
  5. Add a label to display the generated jokes in the GUI.

Here’s some sample code to get you started:

 

import tkinter as tk

import requests

import json

 

# Function to retrieve random jokes from JokeAPI

def get_random_jokes(joke_type, num_jokes):

    url = f”https://v2.jokeapi.dev/joke/{joke_type}?amount={num_jokes}”

    response = requests.get(url)

    data = json.loads(response.text)

    jokes = []

    for item in data[‘jokes’]:

        if item[‘type’] == ‘single’:

            jokes.append(item[‘joke’])

        else:

            jokes.append(item[‘setup’] + ” ” + item[‘delivery’])

    return jokes

 

# Class for the GUI

class JokeGenerator:

    def __init__(self, master):

        self.master = master

        master.title(“Random Joke Generator”)

 

        # Label for joke type

        self.joke_type_label = tk.Label(master, text=”Joke Type:”)

        self.joke_type_label.grid(row=0, column=0)

 

        # Entry box for joke type

        self.joke_type_entry = tk.Entry(master)

        self.joke_type_entry.grid(row=0, column=1)

 

        # Label for number of jokes

        self.num_jokes_label = tk.Label(master, text=”Number of Jokes:”)

        self.num_jokes_label.grid(row=1, column=0)

 

        # Entry box for number of jokes

        self.num_jokes_entry = tk.Entry(master)

        self.num_jokes_entry.grid(row=1, column=1)

 

        # Button to generate jokes

        self.generate_button = tk.Button(master, text=”Generate Jokes”, command=self.generate_jokes)

        self.generate_button.grid(row=2, column=0, columnspan=2)

 

        # Label to display generated jokes

        self.jokes_label = tk.Label(master, text=””)

        self.jokes_label.grid(row=3, column=0, columnspan=2)

 

    # Function to generate jokes

    def generate_jokes(self):

        joke_type = self.joke_type_entry.get()

        num_jokes = int(self.num_jokes_entry.get())

        jokes = get_random_jokes(joke_type, num_jokes)

        jokes_str = “\n”.join(jokes)

        self.jokes_label.config(text=jokes_str)

 

# Create the GUI window

root = tk.Tk()

joke_generator = JokeGenerator(root)

root.mainloop()
