RandomString -- Library to make passwords without misleading letters

CircleCI Coverage Status

This package makes random passwords with fast logic described in this link.

The original logic is NOT goroutine safe because it shares rand.Source and the Int63() calls conflict. The logic in this package is using sync.Mutex to solve this.

package main

import (
  "fmt"

  "github.com/delphinus/random-string"
)

func main() {
  pass := randomString.Generate(8);
  fmt.Printf("simple password: %s\n", pass)
	// simple password: JEVGqkiW
}
