A community effort
Not unlike Wikipedia, Locutus is an ongoing community effort. Our philosophy follows The McDonald’s Theory. This means that we don't consider it to be a bad thing that many of our functions are first iterations, which may still have their fair share of issues. We hope that these flaws will inspire others to come up with better ideas.
This way of working also means that we don't offer any production guarantees, and recommend to use Locutus inspiration and learning purposes only.
Depending on the
callableNamethat is passed, this function can use eval. The eval input is however checked to only allow valid function names, So it should not be unsafer than uses without eval (seeing as you can) already pass any function to be executed here.
Please note that these examples are distilled from test cases that automatically verify our functions still work correctly. This could explain some quirky ones.
