Generating random ID in JavaScript

Varies solutions can be found on the internet on how to do this. But I have found all of them to be heavy and sophisticated. Most of the time, the solution seems to orient around implementing a hash algorithm around a random number.

The solution I often use is short, fast, and good enough for 80% of your use case.

Math.floor( * Math.random()).toString(36)
