Ok, found a thread asking the same question and it is not related in any way, it was created by a former PWM user who wanted something more user friendly:

Personally, I've been wanting to learn some basic programming so I could do a total rewrite myself.

Miguel - do you have any suggestions for what would be the best modern language to learn to accomplish this?

I've never heard of Passwordmaker X...

Miguel - do you know the origins? He references website in the Addon home page.

Is this just an updated/modified Passwordmaker? Or a total rewrite? Or what?
Thanks for your reply. It does allow to change the way passwords are generated through options menu.
I haven't used the one by emersion, but does it allow you to change how the passwords are generated? It's possible the defaults are not the same, or you alter one of the two.
Dear All - I am a new user of this very elegant solution about passwords - Password Maker. I tried it on 3-4 websites and found it very helpful. However, I am confused whether "Password Maker" and "Password Maker X 2.0.3" by emersion is the same and equally safe to use. I tried both for one website and two different passwords were generated. While the "Password Maker X 2.0.3" by emersion was last updated on February 8, 2016, the "PasswordMaker" was last updated on August 20, 2010 (quite backdated).

Which one should I use and why?

Please give your valuable opinions.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all,

This is a security issue actually.

Let's say is the site you want to log into. Now, someone wants to steal login details and get the domain or

Using your suggestion, they can steal your password. I don't think there are enough valid sites to make this a worth while option actually.

I'd like to suggest that PasswordMaker adds a "Domain extension" field to the Profile options list.

That way passwords could be generated using just the website name: "mywebsite" rather than "" without having to manually edit the URL field.

I currently use that for a number of sites due to web address changes as well as for non-online passwords. This feature would mean I could make them all passwords consistent and automatic.

It'd be great to hear if anyone else agrees or any other thoughts.

- Thanks.

TL;DR -- Different Templates, no way to be compatible

First off, that other app uses a key generator, which PasswordMaker doesn't have. The output of that key generator is what you would put in the master password here.

What is passes to HMAC-SHA-256 is DIFFERENT anyway. First, it starts with the appID that some mobile apps would use in the background which could be used here, then the length of the site, which I'm not sure if we can add.

Then it's the encoding step. At the start, this app had a simple binary to hex conversion, then switched to something else to allow more characters, but at heart, it's still a binary to whatever you would call the character set. NOTHING can be done about this.

Greeting, is it possible to get it compatible with

As I started with that but could not get addons for Opera an Vivaldi for that.

I tried with same user name, same hashing algorithm (HMAC-SHA-256), same password lenght. But I can't get the same passwords. Different Templates?
