Please, enter the words separated by commas: Andrés, Lina

Are you satisfied with the password? (y/n) n
Please, enter the words separated by commas:

Validate

This section of the code introduces a feature that validates any given password against the Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) API.

$ passbird start
? Want to generate a default or memorable password or want to validate a password? Validate
? Insert password to validate: Loi

Warn:
Password has been exposed in previous data breaches.

Usage (when installed in an specific context)

If you want to use an specific function (default, memorable or validate password), run:

For default:

node default.js <length> <includeUppercase> <includeNumbers> <includeSymbols>

The command will be something like:

node default.js 10 true true true

If you want to import it and use it in your project:

import { generatDefaultePassword } from '../node_modules/passbird/src/index.js';

// Define arguments
let length = 10;
let includeUppercase = 'true';
let includeNumbers = 'true';
let includeSymbols = 'true';

// Call the function
let password = generatDefaultePassword(length, includeUppercase, includeNumbers, includeSymbols);

For memorable:

node memorable.js <includeUppercase> <includeNumbers> <includeSymbols>

The command will be something like:

node memorable.js true true true

Then, you will be ask for write the words you want to use.

If you want to import it and use it in your project:

import { generateMemorablePassword } from '../node_modules/passbird/src/index.js';

// Define arguments
let includeUppercase = 'true';
let includeNumbers = 'true';
let includeSymbols = 'true';

// Call the function
generateMemorablePassword(includeUppercase, includeNumbers, includeSymbols);

For validate:

node validate.js <password>

The command will be something like:

node validate.js password123

If you want to import it and use it in your project:

import { validatePassword } from '../node_modules/passbird/src/index.js';

// Define the password
let password = 'password123';

// Call the function
validatePassword(password);

Note that default.js and memorable.js return the variable "password", so you can use it in your project but validate.js returns a message if the password is breached or not.
