Command-Line utility to store and retrieve passwords

Project description

CLVault uses Keyring to provide a command-line utility to safely store and retrieve passwords.

Install it using pip or the setup.py script:

$ python setup.py install

$ pip install clvault

Once it’s installed, you will have three scripts installed in your Python scripts folder, you can use to list, store and retrieve passwords:

$ clvault-set blog
Set your password:
Set the associated username (can be blank): tarek
Set a description (can be blank): My blog password
Password set.

$ clvault-get blog
The username is "tarek"
The password has been copied in your clipboard

$ clvault-list
Registered services:
    blog    My blog password

clvault-set takes a service name then prompt you for a password, and some optional information about your service. The password is safely stored in a keyring while the description is saved in a .clvault file in your home directory. This file is created automatically the first time the command is used.

clvault-get copies the password for a given service in your clipboard, and displays the associated user if any.

clvault-list lists all registered services, with their description when given.
