Library

To use as a library is pretty simple:

config := generator.Config{
		Length:                     16,
		IncludeSymbols:             false,
		IncludeNumbers:             true,
		IncludeLowercaseLetters:    true,
		IncludeUppercaseLetters:    true,
		ExcludeSimilarCharacters:   true,
		ExcludeAmbiguousCharacters: true,
	}
g, _ := generator.New(&config)

pwd, _ := g.Generate() 
// pwd = 8hp43B2R7gaXrZUW

pwds, _ := g.GenerateMany(5)
// pwds = [
//   dnPp2TW2e8wmkAwT,
//   XVYwWn25xuNwhUTy,
//   vQ8aSrustQzxQCkA,
//   AuT4fu5RU9TtxEUR,
//   muDwwBRpKpC5BcHr,
// ]

pwd, _ = g.GenerateWithLength(12)
// pwd = HHhpzRGsmEWt

pwds, _ := g.GenerateManyWithLength(5, 12)
// pwds = [
//   s5TKYPdgRzvZ
//   wZFgzs8PUvRg
//   tU73qZ9sPzEs
//   mMaYU6hkvxPQ
//   KBNZ2D7cVQS2
// ]

The library also comes with some helper constants:

const (
	// LengthWeak weak length password
	LengthWeak = 6

	// LengthOK ok length password
	LengthOK = 12

	// LengthStrong strong length password
	LengthStrong = 24

	// LengthVeryStrong very strong length password
	LengthVeryStrong = 36

	// DefaultLetterSet is the letter set that is defaulted to - just the
	// alphabet
	DefaultLetterSet = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"

	// DefaultLetterAmbiguousSet are letters which are removed from the
	// chosen character set if removing similar characters
	DefaultLetterAmbiguousSet = "ijlo"

	// DefaultNumberSet the default symbol set if character set hasn't been
	// selected
	DefaultNumberSet = "0123456789"

	// DefaultNumberAmbiguousSet are the numbers which are removed from the
	// chosen character set if removing similar characters
	DefaultNumberAmbiguousSet = "01"

	// DefaultSymbolSet the default symbol set if character set hasn't been
	// selected
	DefaultSymbolSet = "!$%^&*()_+{}:@[];'#<>?,./|\\-=?"

	// DefaultSymbolAmbiguousSet are the symbols which are removed from the
	// chosen character set if removing ambiguous characters
	DefaultSymbolAmbiguousSet = "<>[](){}:;'/|\\,"
)
