Change random room name in meet

Is it (still) not possible to have a bit more control over this random room name. For instance not having things like ‘MoodyAnimalsEmancipateSeldom’ but ‘oogh2xeiHum0hoh9’

You go in modules then you execute “git clone”.
But, we need to import the good one, so you need to change the import inside react/features/welcome/components/AbstractWelcomePage.js"

You replace this line :
import { generateRoomWithoutSeparator } from ‘js-utils/random’;

with this line :
import { generateRoomWithoutSeparator } from ‘…/…/…/…/modules/js-utils/random’;

In “random” you can modify a method that generate your name 's room.

That should be good now.

Cloned the modules directory and made the changes however, it is not reflecting on my page. Any help?


vim modules/js-utils/random/roomNameGenerator.js

You can modify a classic room name generator.

for example if you want the room number to be numerical and only 10 random characters …
Do this:

const NUMBER = [
‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’, ‘4’, ‘5’, ‘6’, ‘7’, ‘8’, ‘9’, ‘0’


and then in PATTERNS write:


so, make the project.

Hi @Marco_Scammacca,

This is what I exactly did. However, it is not reflecting on the website. Do i need to update the package.json?

did you run the “make” command to compile the code?

no, can you show me an example of the command?

how did you download the project? git clone from github?

i did quick installation and then cloned js-utils. Saw the makefile here in github, shoud i put it in my repo?

You can try to run “make” command in ubuntu at this directory :

This is what I get when I run the make command

root@sparksoft:/home/ubuntu/jitsi-meet# make
./node_modules/.bin/webpack -p

Insufficient number of arguments or no entry found.
Alternatively, run 'webpack(-cli) --help' for usage info.

Just to provide an update, I also cloned webpack.config.js from github so I can run the make command. But when I do so, here is the error message and I think it didnt apply the changes that I made in roomNameGenerator.js:

Hi, the quick install I think install the jitsi-meet under usr / share.
So the modification to the js-utils module you have to do it inside this solution. Then you can compile the project with the make command in usr / share / jitsi-meet.

I don’t understand why you also have usr / ubuntu / jitsi-meet …


I just created a symlink for jitsi that’s why it is under usr/ubuntu.
