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.
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/

Clone git repo:
$ git clone git://github.com/babab/DisPass.git $ cd dispass

Using the command line app
The label is a string that you use to identify the password. i.e. this can be a domainname of the service the password is used for like 'google.com'.
This is a master password that, together with the label is used to generate the passphrase.

USAGE: dispass [options] [label] [label2] [label3] [...] Options: -c, --create use if this passphrase is new (check input PW) -h, --help show this help and exit -V, --version show full version information and exit
