A jQuery / Bootstrap Password Strength Indicator plugin that creates a progress bar below your password field to indicate the password strength and displays error messages to prompt user with correct password parameters/requirements.

How to use it:

1. Include both jQuery library and Bootstrap framework on the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="bootstrap.min.js"></script>

2. Download and include the jquery.passwordstrength.min.js script after jQuery.

<script src="jquery.passwordstrength.min.js"></script>

3. Let's say you have a sign up form like this:

<form>
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="exampleInputEmail1">Email address</label>
    <input type="email" class="form-control" id="exampleInputEmail1" placeholder="Email">
  </div>
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="exampleInputPassword1">Password</label>
    <input type="password" class="form-control" id="exampleInputPassword1" placeholder="Password">
  </div>
  <button type="submit" class="btn btn-danger">Submit</button>
</form>

4. Just call the function on the password field and the plugin will do the rest.

$('#exampleInputPassword1').passwordStrength();

5. Specify the minimum amount of characters.

$('#exampleInputPassword1').passwordStrength({
  minimumChars: 8
});
