Project description


By using pip:

pip install phg


Generate a random password, default to 16 characters:

$ phg

Generate 20 random characters password:

$ phg -l 20

Generate random password which may contain single quotes or double quotes:

$ phg -q

Generate multiple passwords for multiple users:

$ phg hvn htl daivq tuda namnh thanhnt
hvn: DyZ9CCzaK!B5m-ms
htl: R;#SF(6dkr>)0pNI
daivq: !Bk6}tX.qlO/:?{2
tuda: z7.(}qZ:9[IMv,op
namnh: z(Dj5BRv/al>}O=j
thanhnt: w8,oG-e!uRV$CiE6

Generate password and hash it with an external command (uses password as STDIN):

$ phg hvn -c 'shasum -a 512256' -i  # -i for stdin
hvn: 7Qm?i250R\06>&^*

This is corresponding to generate password then pass it to command specified in -c through pipeline. Notice: shasum is command on OSX.

Generate password and hash it with an external command, password used as command argument, this mainly targets command that does not support reading from STDIN:

$ phg hvn -c '/tmp/addprefix'
hvn: 93k/0E{cZVc6jWz/

Generate passwords for many users, construct a message that you can sent over Markdown powered chat app such as Slack, Mattermost:

$ phg -m -s hvn nvh pikachu pukachi
Address User: hvn Passwd: ``$8pZTMWX~NU5Z-2e``
Address User: nvh Passwd: ``S%]JWO-_bS]:w7QI``
