Basic functionality is supposed to work: password could be loaded from file and cracked with different options.

The reasoning behind Johnny is simple but at the same time profound: Complexity through simplicity and non-intrusive expert and non-expert availability. Johnny is a GUI concept to John the Ripper written in C++ using the Qt framework, making it cross-platform on both Unix/Linux and Windows operating systems.

It was programmed as a part of the Google Summer of Code 2012 and supports bother 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. The interface also leaves room for lots of new options, either future John options, as well as GUI specific options like, hash detection, dictionary editing and generation or interactive bruteforce charsets or rules creation and many more.
