Default Start with Randomizer

Does someone have fun with programming a little crazy script?
I need a script to start a composition with a Randomizer.
Maybe the number of categories are flexible. I think 9 categories are enough.
One has to fill the single category with his own list content.The content of the lists leads to the probability.
One random button for all and perhapbs for each category a single random button.
Perhaps a button to send the result in the storage (strg+c) and then in an empty item.
Thank you very much

Is it impossible to program this script?

It should be only a list in the "Reascript Console Output" to start a new composition with a random template. Not always Tempo 120 4/4Takt Cmajor ...

x-raym gives me the tip to do this with tables, but I don`t know how to show the result in the "Console output"

"notes_array = {"a", "b", "c"} -- create an array with all possible notes
notes = notes_array[ math.random(1, #notes_array) ] -- pick one value in the table randomly "
Thanks

It's not something I'd need myself but since it seems relatively straightforward to do and I was in the mood to give it a try here's a basic first prototype.

edit:
new version coming soon

@ nofish, thank you for your first version.

I have 2 new features
The results of the randomizer have to be editable, like normal text.
You can save it in presets.

i think a list design is better because you can use longer terms.
Thank you

Pretty specific - are you aware of Brian Eno's "Oblique Strategies" cards/system? There are a number of apps on IOS/Android.

Interesting,
I have found a site
http://stoney.sb.org/eno/oblique.html
One could integrate something similar.

There already is an Oblique Strategies JS plugin of some sort I think? I may be imagining that... regardless, there are plenty of variations of apps on IOS/Android.

U2's "The Joshua Tree" was supposedly heavily reliant on Eno making them write around Oblique Strategies, but that may be apocryphal.

My first attempt. Without Gui, only with Console.
Presets and buttons would not be bad.
Thank you X-Raym.
