People ask you for the Wi-Fi password. Answer quickly. macOS only. Windows version.

How to use

1. Install it

With bpkg:

$ bpkg install rauchg/wifi-password

With Homebrew:

$ brew install wifi-password

With Antigen:

Add antigen bundle rauchg/wifi-password to your .zshrc with your other antigen commands

With Zgen

Add zgen load rauchg/wifi-password to your .zshrc with your other zgen commands

or with curl:

curl -L -o ~/bin/wifi-password && chmod +x ~/bin/wifi-password

If you don't have ~/bin in your $PATH, replace it with /usr/local/bin or similar.

2. Use it:

To get the password for the WiFi you're currently logged onto:

$ wifi-password

To get it for a specific SSID:

$ wifi-password <ssid>

To put it straight in your clipboard for pasting elsewhere (OS X only):

$ wifi-password | pbcopy



You can’t perform that action at this time.
