Terminal Hacking Statistics Generator!
For some background on this project, please check out my blog.
This is a simple command-line tool that will take in a list of words (one of which is assumed to be a special password), and an algorithm, and will tell you how successful that algorithm is in finding the password. Inspired by the terminal hacking mini-game found in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4.
For details on the algorithms and sample word lists, check out the blog.
To get started, make sure you have node installed. Then run
npm install, and when that's finished just type
node app. The prompts will walk you through the rest.
