What does this project do?
This project generates an easy-to-use printout of a Diceware wordlist. Simply select a word list file from your local computer and the website will generate a printer-friendly version of the word list with little dice icons.
The generated printout is 36 pages long, where each page has 6 columns of 36 words separated into 6 groups. This means that each page represents the first two dice, each column represents the third dice, each group represents the fourth dice, and each word is the fifth dice. This format makes it super fast to find the particular word when flipping through the pages. I play-tested this with my mom, and she had no problem figuring out where to go lookup the word from her dice roll.
What is Diceware?
Diceware is a method for creating easy-to-remember random passwords by rolling 5 dice and looking up the number from a word list containing 7,776 words (6^5). There are many word lists (including the EFF, original list, and other languages).
How do I print?
- Use the print preview function in your browser
- Landscape mode
- Turn on background images
- Scale until each page fits (I have to zoom out to ~75%)

Happy to receive pull requests, but my goal is to keep this project simple and tiny. It's supposed to work, nothing more.
