About pwgenGUI

At work, I often have to create new passwords for users. It’s not terribly difficult to do and I usually open my browser, navigate to one of the many password generating sites and grab a new password. Easy, but then I thought to myself, could it be even easier? I mean, I really should be able to do this with just 1 click of the mouse.

So, the other night, I created a little Python+GTK GUI application to do just that. pwgenGUI is basically a front-end for pwgen, a command line tool for generating passwords. I’m not sure if anyone else will find it useful, but I’ve packaged the application for Ubuntu and installation instructions can be found here.
