Get WiFi Password from Command Line
I met Guillermo Rauch several years ago in the #mootools-dev room on IRC. He jumped into the MooTools project and made great things happen; he also coded MooTools' plugins forge. Since then he's gone on to create amazing things, most recently releasing HyperTerm, an excellent terminal app for Mac. I was recently browsing his GitHub repo list and found a goldmine of work but one quickly stuck out: wifi-password.

I can think of dozens of instances when this would've done me well. Being able to retrieve passwords from any app or network is incredibly useful when on the go!
