Place this file somewhere on your filesystem, either in your load-path or somewhere else which you will have to add to your load-path, like so:
(add-to-list 'load-path "/location/of/dispass.el")
And then load, require or autoload it in your emacs init file, for example:
Or if you have package.el you could use package-install-file.
Using dispass.el is simple, once installed. Either call dispass to recall a priviously generated password or call dispass-create to generate a new password.
The only real difference between the two is that dispass-create asks to confirm the password. Both will ask for a label.
Once a password has been generated it is inserted into the kill ring and the system’s clipboard so it can be easily inserted into password field, this makes the generated password easy to see in plaintext in the kill-ring variable, though.
