Prompty 1.0 Stable:

An open-source Bash script-set for creating a BASIC password prompt, inspired by this request "http://askubuntu.com/questions/758185/how-to-validate-a-users-password-with-a-shell-script" (presently unanswered). This probably isn't very secure, but for situations where only minimal security is needed it is viable. Also useful as a captcha to help enforce human presence requirements in order to run your scripts/tools. You can prompt the user for their password, or you can specify one (which you can optionally display to the user for a captcha-like function).

A copy of the license, installation instructions, and a list of dependencies is included in the download.

Prompty 2.0 Stable:
An open-source BASIC authentication prompter written in Bash for GNU/Linux. A copy of the license, installation instructions, and a list of dependencies is included in the download. It was built and tested on Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop AMD64.

Major changes in this release, but the key change is that before, both using a specified password and using a user password was preformed by the same sub-script, but now they have their own sub-scripts. This makes for simpler more secure code.

- Removed some options, and split into seperate tasks.
- Added ability to use autogenerated password.
- Added ability to prompt for any key instead of password.
- When using a specified password the default behavior is now not to display it to the user.

- Prompt user for their account password
- Prompt user for a specified password
- Prompt user for an auto-generated password
- Prompt user to press any key
- Tool is split into several scripts to make it easier for 3rd party tools to use it.
