= pwdcalc

Improve the user experience and security of your web application within just a few seconds by installing the pwdcalc gem. It extends your password fields with a strength bar and hint, enforcing a minimum complexity for security reasons.

Take no risk and help your users to choose good passwords!

== Installation

Add pwdcalc to your Gemfile and bundle it up:

gem 'pwdcalc', :git => 'https://github.com/trimentor/pwdcalc.git'

Run the following command to install it:

bundle install

Run the installation generator:

rails g pwdcalc:install

== Usage

Add the following directives to your JavaScript manifest file:

//= require jquery.YAPSM.min //= require jquery.pwdcalc

Add the following directives to your CSS manifest file:

*= require pwdcalc

Use +Pwdcalc::FormBuilder+ to automatically create password field/-strength meter combinations:

<%= form_for @user, builder: Pwdcalc::FormBuilder do |f| %>

<%= f.label :username %>
<%= text_field :username %>

<div class="field pwdcalc-form-group">
  <%= f.label :password %><br>
  <%= f.password_field :password %>
</div>

<div class="actions">
  <%= f.submit %>
</div>

<% end %>

NOTE: It's required to wrap the control in +pwdcalc-form-group+.

=== Localized Hints

Add the following line somewhere inside your view (e.g. at the bottom of your form):

<%= pwdcalc_translated_hints %>

=== Dictionary Attacks

Many people have a tendency to choose passwords which are short, single words found in dictionaries or simple, easily-predicted variations on words, vulnerable for dictionary attacks.

It's easy to provide a list of obvious passwords. Just add the +data-dictionary+ attribute to the input field:

<%= f.password_field, :data => { :dictionary => 'obviousPasswords()' } %>

Keep in mind that the value should evaluate to an array.

=== Events

The +pwdcalc-submit+ event is sent to the document when the user is attempting to submit the form.

$(document).on('pwdcalc-submit', handler(eventObject, origEventObject, field))

The +pwdcalc-keyup-init+ event is sent to the document when the user releases a key on the keyboard and before a score and hint is shown or hidden.

$(document).on('pwdcalc-keyup-init', handler(eventObject, origEventObject, field))

The +pwdcalc-keyup-complete+ event is sent to the document when the user releases a key on the keyboard and after a score and hint is shown or hidden.

$(document).on('pwdcalc-keyup-complete', handler(eventObject, origEventObject, field))
