How to use it:

1. Include the Bootstrap 3 or Bootstrap 4 framework on the web page.

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

2. Include the boostrap show password plugin after JQuery javascript library.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/bootstrap-show-password.min.js"></script>

3. Include the Font Awesome 5 for the icons (required for Bootstrap 4).

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/fontawesome.min.css">

4. Create a password input field on the page. You can specify the maximum number for characters for the password field using the native maxlength attribute:

<input
  id="password"
  class="form-control"
  type="password"
  maxlength="12"
  placeholder="Enter the password">

5. Initialize the plugin with default options. Done.

$(function() {
  $('#password').password()
})

6. You can also auto-initialize the plugin by using the data-toggle attribute.

<input
  data-toggle="password"
  id="password"
  class="form-control"
  type="password"
  maxlength="12"
  placeholder="Enter the password">

7. All default plugin options.

$('#password').password({

  // 'before' or 'after'
  placement: 'after',
  
  // message
  message: 'Click here to show/hide password',

  // custom icon
  eyeClass: 'fa',
  eyeOpenClass: 'fa-eye',
  eyeCloseClass: 'fa-eye-slash',

  // true or false
  eyeClassPositionInside: false
  
})

8. API methods.

$('#password').password('hide');

// toggle the visibility of the password
