In the current version of Raspian, I know it is possible to change the password of the current logged in user from the command line like so:
which will then prompt the user to enter a new password twice. This will produce output like so:
Changing password for pi. (current) UNIX password: Enter new UNIX password: Retype new UNIX password: passwd: password updated successfully
I was wondering if there is a possible way to change a password programmatically, like from a shell script.
I'm trying to make a configuration script to deploy on my Raspberry Pis and I don't want to manually have to type in new passwords for them.
