Get a password from the terminal. Sounds simple? Sounds like the readline module should be able to do it? NOPE.

Install and use it

bash npm install --save getpass

javascript const mod_getpass = require('getpass');


mod_getpass.getPass([options, ]callback)

Gets a password from the terminal. If available, this uses /dev/tty to avoid interfering with any data being piped in or out of stdio.

This function prints a prompt (by default Password:) and then accepts input without echoing.
