Configure password strength? (set minLength to 8)

    By default it minLength is 10. I would like it to be 8. Didn't find any option for that.
    Would be nice if it where possible to use a configured from e.g. conf/web/create-password.conf.

    1. Ok yes now I added an application server config value, for min password length. It'll be in this file: conf/app/play.conf (the conf/web/ is for Nginx things only). And the config value will be: talkyard.minPasswordLength=8 (if you want 8).

      If one configures a value < 8, the server says "I refuse to start: Min password length is less than 8 chars; that's too easy to crack. Bye.".

      I've pushed this change to my work in progress branch (w-km3 right now). I'll code review later today? tomorrow?, merge into the master branch and then incl in the next version, on Tuesday maybe.

          very nice thank you will check it with the next release :)

          1. Ok your server should now have auto-upgraded to a version with talkyard.minPasswordLength=8 supported. If you try this, it'd be intereting to hear how it works for you
