from blimey import AgileKeychain

# Construct a keychain with either a path to an existing keychain,
# or the path to where you want your keychain created
agilekeychain = AgileKeychain('path/to/keychain.agilekeychain')

# If the keychain doesn't exist, initialise it with a master password

# Existing (and newly crated) keychains are unlocked by calling the unlock method

# You can change the master password by calling set_password

# Call create_item to initialise a new item
item = agilekeychain.create_item()

# Some boilerplate is put in place automatically
# AgileKeychainItem({'encrypted': {}, 'title': 'Untitled', 'createdAt': 1422404797.4550807,
# 'typeName': 'passwords.Password', 'keyID': 'ED7D542C2EA24479407D3D5CB35637D2', 'location': '',
# 'uuid': 'CBA45A598A4A63D4DDD3C78E2CC11666', 'locationKey': ''})

# The item behaves like any dictionary
item['title'] = 'Usage Example'

# Anything stored under 'encrypted' key will be encrypted on save
item['encrypted'] = {
    'username': 'patrick',
    'password': 'correct horse battery staple'

# To save an item, pass it to the save_item method

# To access keychain items, you can iterate over the keychain, ...
for item in agilekeychain:
# AgileKeychainItem({'encrypted': {}, 'title': 'Untitled', 'createdAt': 1422404797.4550807,
# 'typeName': 'passwords.Password', 'keyID': 'ED7D542C2EA24479407D3D5CB35637D2', 'updatedAt': 1422404900,
# 'location': '', 'uuid': 'CBA45A598A4A63D4DDD3C78E2CC11666', 'locationKey': ''})

# ... or access them directly by their UUID

# When you are done you can lock the keychain by calling the lock method
