View Full Version : Editing This Script... Password Generator

05-30-2007, 02:52 AM
Hi all,

I found a great script which can generate any number of passwords I want... However I want to edit it so that I can specify if I want to put always 2 characters in front of the passwords I can. For example if I want ed to generate 500 passwords, but all iof them started with 'jd', or 'lm'... Any ideas would be greatly apprecaited!

Here's the script


Thanks in advance!

Why not just generate the passwords, then prepend the characters you want?

Hi Twey... Yea I thought actually about doing that but I need to add 'lj' to 500 of them, can I make this happen in Excel or something?

You're using javascript. This is very easy:

Assuming that password is a variable that stores the generated value--

password = 'jd'+password;

Generate your passwords, then use this bookmarklet:
javascript:(function(str) { for(var i = 0, e = document.forms.PWGEN.elements.PASSWORD.value.split(/\r?\n/); i < e.length; ++i) e[i] = str + e[i]; document.forms.PWGEN.elements.PASSWORD.value = e.join("\n"); })("lm");Change the string in red at the end.

Hi twey... I'm not familiar with Bookmarklet's... So I've generate the passwords and now they are just in a text file... What's the next step?

They need to be in the text field on that page. Just paste the above into your address bar and hit enter, unless you're using Konqueror, in which case it needs to be saved as a minitool first.
