An extension for SkySpark v3.0.12+ that provides Axon functions for retreiving jokes from the Internet Chuck Norris Database (ICNDB).


There's only one thing more awesome than Chuck Norris...

And that's Chuck Norris jokes!

Over at the Internet Chuck Norris Database (or ICNDB for short) you can find literally hundreds of Chuck Norris jokes. They have classic ones, rude ones, and even nerdy ones!

The ICNDB boasts a REST-ful API for easy access. It lets you retrieve random jokes, jokes by ID, and jokes by category. Not only that, it even lets you change the words Chuck Norris to any name you want! Be it your name, your friend's name, or your Mum!

And now you can call the ICNDB from Axon!

// get random joke
joke1 : afIcndbGet()     // --> "Love does not hurt. Chuck Norris does."

// get joke by ID
joke2 : afIcndbGet(461)  // --> "Chuck Norris finished World of Warcraft."

// pass options
joke3 : afIcndbGet({
    "firstName" : "Emma",
    "lastName"  : "Statham",
    "limitTo"   : ["nerdy"]
})                       // --> "Emma Statham can install a 64 bit OS on 32 bit machines."

Wow! Just think, now all your SkySpark applications can have a Chuck Norris joke of the day!

Chuck Norris

"All browsers support the hex definitions #chuck and #norris for the colours black and blue."

True dat.
