can someone explain how the page can create pairs offline  ?

each pair will only show one time and cant be reconstructed ?

a key-pair was created from random-number generator, and you won't be able to reconstruct it without the knowing the secret_key.

 

if you like to have more options, could try my wallet app at: https://ripplerm.github.io/ripple-wallet/
(for a real cold-storage, you should copy the source codes to an off-lined computer, then open the index.html file)
You can generate new accounts under Tools --> Account Generator.

Here, you have 3 options to create an account:
1. from your own passphrase, i.e. a brain-wallet.
2. from seed/secret_key, i.e. similar to most other wallet apps.
3. from a private_key (you can even use a bitcoin wif privatekey for this).

thanks @ripplerm

i need to verify the source codes ?

i think the password option  makes more sense. 

which option you prefer?

me myself is a fan of deterministic brain-wallet, simply becoz i dont need to write it down or store it in any place. But honestly I won't recommend this method to ordinary users.

just Google "risk of brain wallet", and you will find dozens of article explaining how risky a brain-wallet is, for most people.

 

my brain passphrase has >70 char long, consisting numbers, upper&lower case alphabets ('words' that doesn't exist in any dictionary), and special characters.

compared to brain-wallet, key-pair generated from a random seed/secret is more safe because it's created by some random-number-generator-algorithm that's ensure enough entropy.

I had recently published a short article about the technical relation between a seed and derived key-pair of a ripple account:

Did you create a wallet in Rippex desktop wallet? The password is the password you set when you created the wallet file, it's not a password you can import from any other website or software.

Also, are you sure you're selecting the correct account file on your computer in: "Selected account file"
