Action to create a password

Post by tomson » Sat Sep 26, 2015 6:20 pm

Is it possible to create a shortcut or action to generate a password?

With DuckDuckGo.com you can easily send the query 'password 12' and get a random password. Apple Keychain can also generate passwords and 1Password does as well.

It would be great to create a recipe for a specific kind of password, e.g. number of characters, number of special characters, case, &c and to use LaunchBar to return a random password based on these parameters.

Is that possible?

you can fork the action from github, thus creating your own, then change the script that generates the password as you wish
