API:
~~~~

::

pypw.RandomPassword(sequence=None, mixedCases=True)
sequence(str): The string you want to create a password from
mixedCases(bool): Generate mixed casing on letters

returns: <pypw.RandomPassword instance>

randomBool()
returns: True/False

randCase(sequence)
- Randomizes the casing on a string or list

sequence(str/list): The string to randomize casing on

returns: List of characters

generateRandomPW(length=None, alpha=True, digits=True, symbols=True)
- Generate a random password chosen by PyPW

length(int): Defines how many characters you want in the generated password
alpha(bool): Choose to use alphabetical characters in randomly generated password or not
digits(bool): Choose to use digits (0-9) in randomly generated password or not
symbols(bool): Choose to use symbols in randomly generated password or not

returns: Dict with result, score, ranking and phonetic

generatePW()
- Generate password from the arguments passed to RandomPassword

returns: Dict with result, score, ranking and phonetic

phonetic(sequence)
- Generate a 'phrase' to (hopefully) help the user remember the password. (Not guaranteed to make sense!)

sequence(str): The string you want to generate a phonetic phrase on

returns: Str

strength(sequence)
- Calculate the strength of the password based on length, digits, symbols and casing

returns: Tuple
