CLI Password Generator 3

Commits since last release Crates version License Tests

This program can read /dev/urandom to quickly generate random passwords in Linux.

This is a continuation of my saga of password generators. Some of which include genpass2, Genpass4Win, and Password-Magician. (Not rust projects)


To install this application, you will need to have cargo from the Rust language. If you don't have it, you can refer to the installation instructions here.

Then you simply run the following command in your terminal:

$ cargo install genpass3


$ genpass3

You can also specify the length of the password you desire:

$ genpass3 50
hr#7dE_DpMM)K0(y>) 5'`0 BI|3.?*6;+5OF/SHhJX.rip\W_

There's also a --help menu:

$ genpass3 --help
    genpass3 <LENGTH>

The LENGTH is an optional parameter specifying the desired length of the password.
