As of v1.1.0, passgen will generate cryptographically secure tokens that can be used as automatically-generated passwords or as session tokens. You can probably find other uses, too.
Relies on the Node.js built-in crypto library to generate cryptographically secure tokens. If you are wanting to use passgen in the browser, you can use the "randombytes" browserify stand-alone: https://github.com/crypto-browserify/randombytes
$ npm install passgen
var passgen = require('passgen');
By default, you'll get 64 alphanumeric characters in mixed case:
var password = passgen.create(); // l6HonY3FSD4O3HYWU6d05DDD2uCY5aaSZIxFNwj7KOw9dic6Pr31S2TkqV8rdeSl
Choose a different password length:
var password = passgen.create(12); // 6KLOjSlx6Nfk
Choose a different alphabet from which to pick characters for the password:
var password = passgen.create(12, 'abc'); // caccabccbacb
npm run-script test
passgen relies on Vows test framework.
