    getpass

    Get a password from the terminal. Sounds simple? Sounds like the readline module should be able to do it? NOPE.

    Install and use it

    npm install --save getpass
    const mod_getpass = require('getpass');

    API

    mod_getpass.getPass([options, ]callback)

    Gets a password from the terminal. If available, this uses /dev/tty to avoid interfering with any data being piped in or out of stdio.

    This function prints a prompt (by default Password:) and then accepts input without echoing.

    Parameters:

    • options, an Object, with properties:
      • prompt, an optional String
    • callback, a Func(error, password), with arguments:
      • error, either null (no error) or an Error instance
      • password, a String

    Keywords

    none

    Install

    npm i getpass
