Loplop is longer Oplop

This is a variation on Oplop, covering the following implementations:

  • CLI (Python)
  • Android (PY4A)
  • Javascript (contributed by israellevin)

It doesn't cover any other implementations of oplop, doesn't have tests or, etc. Just the minimum necessary in order to scratch a specific itch.


Oplop generates 8-character long passwords. The range is small enough to enable various brute-force attacks (e.g. rainbow tables).

Difference from oplop

Loplop is not backward compatible with oplop (but it can be told to work in "legacy mode"):

  • By default, loplop generates 16-character long passwords.
  • You can prefix the label with n* (where n is an integer) in order to change the length (e.g. 12*twitter).
  • For backward compatible 8 character passwords, you can omit the n (i.e. 8) and write - for example - *twitter.
  • Maximum password length is 22 (the effective length of a 16-byte md5 hash encoded as base64). You can specify a larger n, but 23*skidoo and 666*skidoo would be equivalent to 22*skidoo.
  • If you need to use an ambiguous label (e.g. *spangled or 3*cheers), you'll need to explicitly prefix it with 16*.

Misc additions to the CLI implementation:

  • The -p command line argument pauses and waits for a carriage-return after execution. Used by glop (see below).
  • glop (i.e. "gnome loplop") opens a gnome-terminal running loplop -p (plus any other args you throw at it). The password stays in the clipboad until you hit enter (which closes the window and clears the clipboard). If you don't hit enter, the window will be closed next time you run glop (so that you don't end up with many "orphan" glop windows to close).


CLI on Linux: just symlink glop and/or loplop to a folder in your path (e.g. ~/bin).

CLI on other platforms: you tell me :)

SL4A on Android: See the README.

Javascript: Just run index.html in a browser ( preferably on a computer disconnected from the internet ;) ).
