Gibberish

Build Status

Gibberish generates pronounceable passwords that are easy-to-remember and hard-to-guess. Gibberish can also generate pseudo english passphrases.

Prerequisites

In order to build Gibberish, you will need

  • GHC (tested on 9.6.2), or
  • Nix (tested on 2.18.1)

Installing

Gibberish is on Hackage. The gibber executable can be installed with cabal-install:

cabal install gibberish

Building

The gibber executable can be built with cabal-install:

cabal build

On Nix, the it can be built with:

nix build

Running

Genarate a list of passwords:

gibber <length>

Generate random phrases (1 per line):

gibber --passphrases <min-length> <max-length>

To see all available options:

gibber --help

API Documentation

The full API documentation is on hackage at https://hackage.haskell.org/package/gibberish/docs. The documentation can also be built with:

cabal haddock

API Example

Gibberish can be used to generate words or phrases in Haskell code. For example: generate a word by using Data.Gibberish:

import Data.Gibberish
import Data.Text (Text ())
...
-- Generate a word of length 10
fooGen :: IO Text
fooGen = do
  gen <- getStdGen
  trigraph <- loadTrigraph English

let opts =
      GenPasswordOpts
        { woptsCapitals = False,
          woptsDigits = False,
          woptsSpecials = False,
          woptsTrigraph = trigraph,
          woptsLength = 10
        }

let (word, _) = usingPass gen (genPassword opts)
pure (unWord word)
