mkroesti 0.4 released

The main new thing in version 0.4 is that mkroesti is now available as a CGI script. Check out the demo site if you are interested. Visit the project page for more information and to download the tar ball.

mkroesti 0.3 released

Version 0.3 of mkroesti renames the hash crypt-system to crypt-des and adds the following new hashes: crypt-md5 crypt-sha-256 crypt-sha-512 crypt-apr1; this hash requires the module python-aprmd5 which I am going to make available as a separate project ASAP As usual, the tar ball is available from the project page.

mkroesti 0.2 released

This new version of mkroesti adds Python 3 support, hopefully keeping backward compatibility with Python 2.6. Go to the project page to download the tar ball.

mkroesti 0.1 released

This is the first public release 0.1 of mkroesti, a small Python learning project of mine. Visit the project web page for details if the following project résumé piques your interest.

mkroesti is a program written in Python that, given an input, is capable of generating different kinds of cryptographic and other hashes from that input. mkroesti takes its input either interactively from the user, or from any one of the following sources: standard input, the command line, any file. So far, mkroesti does not have its own implementation of hash algorithms. Instead, it relies on other Python modules to provide algorithm implementations and merely acts as a front end to those modules.

At the moment, mkroesti can only be run as a command line utility. One of the next versions will allow mkroesti to be run as a web application. There is also a plan for implementing a Mac OS X GUI front end.


Version 0.4

mkroesti is a hash generator written in Python.

mkroesti can be used both as a command line utility and as a web tool (demo site). It takes an input (e.g. a file, or a password) and generates different kinds of hashes from that input. The hashes to generate are selected by naming them on the command line, or ticking the corresponding checkboxes in the web GUI.
