Passwords for humans

Abstract

This is a small node library to generate semi-ok passwords for pragmatic human use. Each password is formed by combining two medium-length common words and randomly tweaking them. The resulting password will be memorable while containing characters of each class: lowercase, uppercase, digits, symbol.

This library is NOT meant to generate very strong passwords. The author does not guarantee security, safety, nor anything else. Please always consider what you are protecting when generating a password, and understand that different contexts may necessitate different levels of security and convenience, the two of which are usually at odds with each other.

Usage

Require the module:

const humanpass = require('./index');

Generate a password:

let password = humanpass();
console.log(`New password: ${password}`);

Generate a list of (e.g., 10) passwords:

let passwords = humanpass.generatePasswords(10);
console.log(passwords);

The word list was sourced from the filtered list of medium-length swear-free words provided in the GitHub repository first20hours/google-1000-english. These were in turn yielded from the Google Books Ngram Viewer.
