A recommended way of installing the tool is pip install.

The tool is available in PyPI and can be installed using pip:

$ pip install --user ppotp

Tool to generate One-Time Passwords and copy them to clipboard

positional arguments:
  key        key or service name from ~/.otpkeys

optional arguments:
  --version  show program's version number and exit
  --help     show this help message and exit
  --debug    debugging mode

Examples

$ otp BEXUS3AVCUU7HYU4OZQ44WFXMULPNQB2TKQ4YCNUASPXMPEH6YAZ3IACFM5VEGUQ
770400

Key file ~/.otpkeys

You can save your keys to ~/.otpkeys file using service=key format, for example:

$ cat ~/.otpkeys
aws=N5VEJBTUA553BYJTTTUGS3GANKVDECG62RHVIOV2FLYR5THC726ZOIOF4SQZZ5NV
google=QYDL7HS7LHPVKX7GGYKYIP3UEYOML2IENWYQD5NHYGETBZIRWWODKQWC3PRNQ3FO
facebook=ZBSLA3KGE4PEXCEGIJ57AKJLOHW2S3ABQNOOWZVV3HOO4Q3455BOG6BRNU5M2QK4

Then you can generate OTP, by running:

$ otp {service}

Example:

$ otp aws
443782

$ otp google
760698

$ otp facebook
009176

Auto copy OTP to clipboard

The tool attempts to automatically copy successfully generated code to the clipboard. It uses pyperclip module for cross-platform copying text to the clipboard.

Example:

$ otp cloud
324982

At this point, provided your system supports it, the above OTP should be in the clipboard.

Copy to clipboard issue

Pyperclip uses various mechanisms to copy text to the clipboard. If your system is missing them, you may see a debug message that says:

Pyperclip could not find a copy/paste mechanism for your system.
For more information, please visit https://pyperclip.readthedocs.io/en/latest/introduction.html#not-implemented-error

Currently, this error should only appear on Linux (not Windows or Mac).

Please check the above guide for more information on how to fix this.
