I want to create a paper wallet but want to do it manually. I understand that bitaddress.org automates the process for you.

Do instructions exist which I can follow to do the same thing which bitaddress does to create a paper wallet?

  • What do you mean by 'manually'? May 21 '14 at 8:05
  • Like user a spreadsheet to manually generate the keys, or maybe by using the terminal in Linux? May 21 '14 at 14:25
  • You still need a program that generates the keys for you... May 21 '14 at 14:26
  • can the keys not be generated using sha256? May 21 '14 at 14:27

If your familiar with javascript then I think the easiest way to go would be to check out https://github.com/bitcoinjs/bitcoinjs-lib . They offer a client side solution for generating bitcoin address info. Theres a few examples in the readme as well.
