pass

A major-mode to manage your password-store (pass) keychain. The keychain entries are displayed in a directory-like structure.

Canonical repository: https://gitlab.petton.fr/nico/pass.

Installing

Use melpa.

Getting started

This library depends on password-store.el and password-store-otp.el.

M-x pass

The following keybindings are available:

  • i: Insert a new entry (With a prefix argument, generate the password)
  • n: Go to the next entry
  • p: Go to the previous entry
  • M-n: Go to the next directory
  • M-p: Go to the previous directory
  • k: Remove the entry at point
  • s: Trigger iSearch
  • r: Trigger iSearch (backward)
  • ?: Help
  • g: Update the password-store buffer
  • RET or v: Go to the entry at point
  • q: Quit pass

2FA / OTP Support

If you have the pass-otp extension installed, you will be able to use the following keybindings as well:

  • o i: Insert an OTP key URI in a new entry (as in pass otp insert)
  • o a: Append an OTP key URI to an existing entry (as in pass otp append)*
  • o s: Take a screenshot of an OTP QR Code and have its related URI be appended to an existing entry
  • o o: Copy OTP token for entry at point (as in pass otp -c)
  • o u: Copy OTP key URI for entry at point (as in pass otp uri -c)

* o a works exactly as pass otp append, in the sense that it will only "append" a URI to an entry if said entry does not have a URI already. pass otp append will not add several OTP key URIs to the same entry, but it will substitute the existing OTP key URI with a new one in each call. For more information, please refer to pass-otp documentation.

Pass View Mode

pass entry files are displayed in buffers that run under pass-view-mode. This major mode provides some features:

  • It will mask the password line automatically, you can hit C-c C-c to unmask it.
  • You can hit C-c C-w to copy your password to your clipbard.
  • In case of having OTP information in an entry, the buffer will display a header line with the OTP token and remaining seconds until expiration.
  • You can hit C-c C-o to copy the OTP token to your clipboard.
  • You can hit C-c C-q to display the QR Code for the OTP URI in the entry.
