What I was trying to do here was create a Python script that would generate passwords with 16 characters with uppercase and lowercase letters, and numbers. The generated password would then write itself to a file.
Let me know what you think because I know they say the point of Python is to be able to write powerful scripts that can do what other languages can do in a few lines. I feel like this is probably way more then it should be for what it's doing.
import random import string print "Welcome to PassBook!" def genPasswd(): global route global password global username global account global entry account = raw_input("Account: ") username = raw_input("Username: ") key1 = random.randrange(10,100) key2 = random.randrange(10,100) key3 = random.randrange(10,100) key4 = random.randrange(10,100) keya = str(random.choice(string.letters) + random.choice(string.letters)) keyb = str(random.choice(string.letters) + random.choice(string.letters)) keyc = str(random.choice(string.letters) + random.choice(string.letters)) keyd = str(random.choice(string.letters) + random.choice(string.letters)) key1a = str(key1) + str(keya) key2b = str(key2) + str(keyb) key3c = str(key3) + str(keyc) key4d = str(key4) + str(keyd) password = str(key1a + key2b + key3c + key4d) entry = "Account: " + account + " - Username: " + username + " - Password: " + password file = open("/home/meta/Desktop/Python2/passbook/passbook.txt", "a") file.write("\n" + entry + "\n") print entry return key1 return key2 return key3 return key4 return keya return keyb return keyc return keyd return key1a return key2b return key3c return key4d return password return username return account return entry def queryPb(): search = raw_input("For which account are you searching: ") read = open("/home/meta/Desktop/Python2/passbook/passbook.txt", "r") for line in read: if search in line: print line return line else: print "I'm sorry we could not find any account related to " + search def takeRoute(): global route route = raw_input("Press 1 to generate a password, Press 2 to search for an existing account: ") if int(route) ==1: genPasswd() elif int(route) == 2: queryPb() else: print "I'm sorry that is not an option!" exit() takeRoute()
