Masked User Input

A micro-package for reading "passwords", i.e. reading user input with masking, so that the input is not displayed as it is typed. Currently we have support for 'RStudio', the command line (every OS), and any platform where 'tcltk' is present.

Readme

getPass

getPass is an R package for reading user input with masking, i.e., the input is not displayed as it is typed. This is obviously ideal for entering passwords. There is also a secure password hashing function included; see the package vignette for more information.

Currently, RStudio, the command line (any OS), and platforms where the tcltk package is available are supported. We believe this hits just about everything, but for unsupported platforms, non-masked reading (with a warning) is optionally available. See the package vignette for more information. You can view the vignette by entering:

vignette("getPass", package="getPass")

into your R session.

You can install the stable version from CRAN using the usual install.packages():
