Overview

Generate fun and silly passwords that are secure, easy to type, and easy to remember. Inspired by xkcd.

Would you rather use the password Tr0ub4dor&3 or exciting creepy macho tiger?

Using an unrestricted brute-force attack, the first would take 3 seconds to crack, and the second would take 1 month. Exciting creepy macho tigers for the win!

Features include:

  • πŸ’© Fun passwords are better than boring ones
    • Why use lame and hard to remember passwords, when you can use fun ones... that are also secure?
  • πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”¬ Password analysis
    • Leverage the brainpower of at least a dozen nerds. This library makes sure your password is secure using zxcvbn.
  • πŸ” Secure
    • Have I mentioned that they're secure? Well, they are!
  • πŸ”’ Customizable
    • Choose from a set of options to customize your password.

Installation

npm i silly-password-generator

Quick Start

Via Website

Go here: Silly Password Generator

Via npm

import { generateSillyPassword } from 'silly-password-generator';
// Use with no options to generate a 4-word silly password
generateSillyPassword(); // `thorough loud annoying penguin`

// Provide a custom word count if you'd like
generateSillyPassword({ wordCount: 7 }); // `glamorous large powerful fast black noisy clam`

// Capitalize the first letter of the resulting password
generateSillyPassword({ capitalize: true }); // `Curious fluffy excited copperhead`

// You can provide salt to strengthen your passwords, too. Salt is appended to the end.
generateSillyPassword({ salt: "!?!?" }); // `damned important envious pangolin!?!?`

Combine options as you see fit. The wordCount must be at least 1.

Analyzing Password Strength

This library uses zxcvbn to analyze password strength. This was written by a bunch of nerds, so you know it's legit.

import { analyzePassword } from 'silly-password-generator';
// Returns an object telling you how awesome or crappy your password is.
const results = analyzePassword(sillyPassword); 

See the zxcvbn Usage section for the properties available.
