A simple package to read credentials generated by systemd's LoadCredential, with a fallback on environment variables.

Project description


This is a simple python package for interfacing with systemd's LoadCredential mechanism. It allows reading secrets from the credentials directory, with a fallback on environment variables if needed.


Basic usage

from loadcredential import Credentials

credentials = Credentials()

secret1 = credentials["SECRET_1"]
