Encrypt files and folders from the command line without breaking a sweat.

Project description

# lockit

Encrypt files and folders from the command line without breaking a sweat 🔒📁📄

Lockit is a very simple program for a very simple purpose. Encrypt files / folders with any password. Let me show you.

`bash $ touch hello.txt $ echo "Hello World" > hello.txt $ lock hello.txt Password: MyPassword Confirm Password: MyPassword $ ls hello.txt.lck $ cat hello.txt.lck 夒▒V▒▒6▒▒▒.▒▒ $ lock hello.txt.lck Password: MyPassword $ ls hello.txt $ cat hello.txt Hello World `

Keep in mind, I used a file. You can do the same with a folder with all the same commands.

`bash $ mkdir hello $ cd hello $ touch test.txt $ echo "Works with directories!" > test.txt $ cd .. $ lock hello Password: Secure Folder Confirm Password: Secure Folder $ ls hello.lck $ lock hello.lck Password: Secure Folder $ cd hello $ cat test.txt Works with directories! `

## Installing

How do you think?

`bash $ pip install lockit  # Do this on windows if you only have 1 python installed $ pip3 install lockit  # Do this on linux $ py -version_here -m pip install lockit  # Python version specific installation for windows `

## TODO:

  • Hide passwords (Multi-platform)
  • Better cli
  • Decaprecate cache system
  • Check if password worked

### All suggestions and pulls are welcome!
