How to compress a folder with a password using the terminal?

If you can’t (or don’t want to) right click over the folder itself you can do as follows.

zip -er name_you_want.zip folder
  • e = encryption (use password)
  • r = recursive (everything inside that folder)

Dealing with keystores and passwords when building for Android with Cordova

Which is the easiest way of builing apps in Android with Cordova?

Use a build.json file

     "android": {
         "release": {
             "keystore": "./your_keystore_file",
             "storePassword": "your_keystore_password",
             "alias": "your_alias_name",
             "password" : "your_alias_password"

And type in your console: cordova build android –release

If you already have a keystore and don’t know what alias to use, run the command: keytool -list -v -keystore YOUR_KEYSTORE_FILE to see all the available aliases.

Keystore only has one password. You can change it using keytool: keytool -storepasswd -keystore MY_KEYSTORE

Note: I’m locating my build.json and keystore_file in my project’s root folder.

View, hide, type and generate password

Love to make things as simple as possible xD A hint just inside the input (where you can type), then a button to show the password if you want to see it and finally a button to generate random passwords.
