DisPass is a passphrase generator for Windows and Unix / Linux. You can use it to create unique passwords for logging in to websites, servers or any other kind of thing that requires login. DisPass does not keep your passwords in a database but rather lets you generate a unique passphrase formed from a master password and a label. It is a command line app, but also has a simple graphical interface.

Downloading/Installing

Using pip to download from the Python Package Index

The recommended way is to download and install directly from the PyPI repository using pip.

$ sudo pip install dispass

You must have python's docutils installed in able to do so. This will install the dispass module in python's dist-packages folder. You can now run dispass using the 'dispass' and 'gdispass' scripts placed under '/usr/local/bin/' or '/usr/bin/'.

The PyPI project page is at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/DisPass/
