    for i in range(100):
        r = py5.random(255)

        py5.line(i, 0, i, 100)

Description

Sets the seed value for py5’s random functions. This includes random(), random_int(), random_choice(), and random_gaussian(). By default, all of these functions would produce different results each time a program is run. Set the seed parameter to a constant value to return the same pseudo-random numbers each time the software is run.

Syntax

random_seed(seed: int) -> None

Parameters

  • seed: int - seed value
