Project description


CI PyPI version


Install keyring-pybridge from pypi using pip install keyring-pybridge, or whatever alternative python package manager you prefer.

Then set environment variables to use the backend:


Finally, you have to point the backend to the secondary python executable that you want to connect to. The keyring package must be installed in that python executable's environment.



The most useful application of this backend is when you are using keyring in a WSL environment, and would like to connect it to the host machine's Windows Credential Manager.

On the host machine, you need to create a python environment and install keyring in it.

Then, in WSL, configure the environment variable KEYRING_PROPERTY_PYTHON to point to the python executable with keyring installed:


Since this library calls the windows binary via a subprocess, this facilitates the context switch to windows that allows keyring to communicate with the Windows Credential Manager. 🎉
