Get character from password

Renovate enabled styled with prettier styled components

I use strong passwords, "correct battery horse staple" ftw!

But I also get quite annoyed counting out my password onto my fingers when prompted to give characters 18, 7 and 12 from my password.

I put this together for just that, paste or type in your password then pick out your character you need.

Demo: https://cfromp.scottspence.me

For Have I Been Pwnd check, use the pwndpasswords API https://api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/5BAA6

To use SHA-1 the password then pass the first five characters to the API then check the remainder of the SHA-1 again the results of the API

So, the SHA-1 of the password password is 5BAA61E4C9B93F3F0682250B6CF8331B7EE68FD8 take the first five chars 5BAA6 and pass to the API https://api.pwnedpasswords.com/range/5BAA6

You will be presented with a range of SHA-1'd passwords that contain that fist five chars. Then you need to check the remainder 1E4C9B93F3F0682250B6CF8331B7EE68FD8 against the results.

1E4C9B93F3F0682250B6CF8331B7EE68FD8:3533661

The number after the colon is the amount of time it has been found in password dumps.
