A brand new core

Create easy a password manager

Step 1: Create database file

using PassWordsCore;
//Your code logic

//Initialize db

//Create PassWords database

Step 2: Login into database

static Database db = new Database();

Step 3: Create account

//Create account object
var account = new Account()
  Username = "Test",
  Password = "Test123",
  Title = "MyAccount",
  Description = "Test the account",
  Type = "Email"
//Add account to current database

Step 4: Get accounts

List<Account> accounts = db.GetAccounts();

Step 5: Edit account

var testaccount = accounts.FirstOrDefault(a => a.Title == "MyAccount");
testaccount.Title = "HelloWorld";

Step 6: Delete account

var testaccount = accounts.First(a => a.Title == "MyAccount");

Step 7: Change database password or name


Step 8: Backup database


Step 8b: Import database


Step 9: Delete database


Step 10: List databases

List<DB> alldatabases = Database.ListDatabases();

Step 11: Delete all databases/the databases file


Two factor authentication

You can use 2FA for making the login to the database more secure, but you can also use PassWords to validate a 2FA login into another system.

Using 2FA in PassWords

//First, login into your database
static Database db = new Database();

//Second, enable 2FA login

//Third, get your secret
//Use this secret into another 2FA app
string secret = db.Get2FA();


//When you login now, 
//you will get

//Now you have to use your 2FA app and enter the code:
db.Login2FA("000000");//your code
//If returns true, you are logged in

//Remove 2FA from database: (first login() and login2fa())

Validating another application that uses 2FA using PassWords

//First, update an account and set the TwoFactorSecret property to your secret
var testaccount = accounts.First(a => a.Title == "MyAccount");
testaccount.TwoFactorSecret = "MYSECRET";

//Second, login into an application with MyAccount

//Generate key (remember => every 30 seconds it changes so you have to generate a new one) 
string code = Database.GenerateCode("MYSECRET");
//Enter the code and log in.

Generate a random string

Database.RandomString(10,true); //Length = 10, letters = true
Database.RandomString(15,true,true,true,true); //Length = 15, letters, capitals numbers and special chars
