SudoTouch

The sudotouch package is a command line utility for enabling TouchID on macOS terminals. This package provides a convenient and efficient way to use biometric authentication for sudo commands, improving security and productivity for macOS users.

Installation

npm install -g sudotouch

Prerequisites

  • macOS
  • Node.js installed

Usage

To enable TouchID for sudo commands, simply run the following command in your terminal:

If TouchID is not already enabled, the package will automatically add the pam_tid.so authentication module to the sudo configuration file, and enable TouchID for sudo commands. If TouchID is already enabled, the package will print a message indicating that it is already enabled.
