I find that it is a good idea to update my Internet passwords from time to time. Previously to do so, I opened Firefox’s Preferences window and then went to the Saved Passwords window. From here, I’d toggle between Firefox and the Saved Passwords window, goto the sites that were listed, and change the password.
After doing this, I decided it would be quicker if I just had them in a text file. In the text file once I had updated the password on the website, I’d comment the line so I’d know I had done so.
The nice thing about working in the terminal too is that once the text file is opened the webpages can be opened by Ctrl clicking on them.
I created a three of scripts to help the process: one to edit the list, one to generate the password, and one to copy the password to the clipboard.
sitepass-ls - list of programs/sites using common pw a | add - add entry to list e | edit - edit list s | sort - sort list alphabetically u | uncom - uncomment list for new password
sitepass-gn - generate password for common use and other use. c | common - generate common password o | other - generate other password
sitepass-cb - copy common, other, and previous passwords to clipb. c | common - copy common o | other - copy other cp | comprv - copy previous common op | othprv - copy previous other x | clear - clear contents of clipboard
Here are the scripts:
