The utility itself has no GUI, and is written in Python, so it’s portable and has few dependencies.
Pro Requires little to no storage
Passacre needs only a configuration file to tell it how to hash passwords, what kind of output it should produce, and which sites need specific generation rules. There’s no database where passwords are stored, so it’s not possible to be locked out of everything if that file is lost.
Pro Free and open source
Run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Android.
Con Requires knowledge of the command line
To use passacre, some knowledge of the command line as well as Python is required.
Con No plugins / does not autofill login information
For example, the Keyorm plugin for the official Keepass client has the ability to open a website, and autofill username & passphrase info. This is an important and expected feature for a password manager, which is not available in KeePassX
