The passwds.ninja web app can come in rather handy when you need an easy-to-remember password. When you visit the site, the app automatically generates a batch of 8-character pronounceable passwords which contain both capital letters and numbers. These might not be the strongest passwords around, but they should do the trick in a pinch. The app is released under an open source license, and since it's written in HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, you can deploy it on your own server in a matter of seconds. Simply clone the project's GitHub repository into the document root of your server using the git clone https://github.com/allixsenos/passwds-ninja-web.git command, and you are good to go. By default, passwds.ninja uses the Cvccvc99 template to generate passwords, where C is a capital consonant, c is a consonant, v is a vowel, and 9 is a number between 1 and 9. By tweaking the template, you can use the app to generate longer and stronger passwords. To do this, modify the default template in the following line of the script.js file:

var template = 'Cvccvc99';

If you happen to use Google Chrome or Chromium, you'll be pleased to learn that passwds.ninja is also available as the Passwds ninja browser extension, with its source code available on GitHub.
