Simple Python script to generate password combinations with nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, numbers and symbols.

It can be run as a module from within your own script or as a standalone program.

Before running from the command line you can adjust the default values listed after

if __name__ == "__main__":

You can adjust the default values to suit your needs

# default values  
number_of_nouns = 0 
number_of_verbs = 0  
number_of_adverbs = 1  
number_of_adjectives = 1 
number_of_symbols = 1  
number_range = (0, 99) 
number_of_passwords = 25 
shuffle_password = False

Or choose them from the command line

 optional arguments:
    optional arguments:
      -h, --help            show this help message and exit
      --nouns NOUNS         number of nouns to use, default is 0
      --verbs VERBS         number of verbs to use, default is 0
      --adverbs ADVERBS     number of adverbs to use, default is 1
      --adjectives ADJECTIVES

      --symbols SYMBOLS     number of symbols to use, default is 1
      --number_lower_range NUMBER_LOWER_RANGE
                            lower range of number to use, default is 0
      --number_upper_range NUMBER_UPPER_RANGE
                            upper range of number to use, default is 99
      --number_of_passwords NUMBER_OF_PASSWORDS
                            number of passwords to generate, default is 25
      --shuffle_password    shuffle the order in which each password component is
                            used, default is False
      --display_defaults    Displays default values and exits

Alternatively can be used as a module from within your own script and will return a list of passwords.

All values are optional and will default to values predefined in the generatePasswords() function if none are provided.

Example with options provided:

from generatePasswords import generate_passwords

password_list = generate_passwords(numberOfNouns = 1,
                               number_of_verbs = 1,
                               number_of_adverbs = 1,
                               number_of_adectives = 1,
                               number_of_symbols = 1,
                               number_range = (0, 99),
                               number_of_passwords = 25,
                               shuffle_password = True,
                               display_passwords = False)

The one syllable word lists included in the git are from from Ashley Bovan's excellent "Parts of speech" word collection available from here where lists of words with more syllables are also available.
