I want to create a password widget.

My idea is to have a textbox so the user can enter how long the password needs to be then when generate is clicked a random number and letter password is created.

I want to use this for user accounts within my company, so i want somthing really random that works offline.

I thought javascript would that work?

I'd have thought just to make a widget that calls the mkpass function, but realised it doesn't exist on MacOS as far as I'm aware.

An open sauce script like this (http://www.multicians.org/thvv/gpw.html) might help, just tweaked to work inside your Widget.
