Its frustrating to manually log on every time I launch pianobar.
I don't care about password security to listen to music. would be nice to provide credentials via command line or a .pianobar configuration file

Please have a look at the manpage.

It would be good if there was an option in the program to save the credentials to the config file. It'd be much easier for users.

There are a few things that I expect from users. Amongst them is the
ability to read a manpage and edit a text file.

is the ability to save its settings to its config file. :)

Having read the man page, I'm still left wondering how one used decrypt_password and encrypt_password to save the password in something other than plaintext.

  1. How does one encrypt the password to use it?
  2. Is encrypt_password required?

Adding this just to follow the thread trend: There are few things I expect from a man page. Amongst them is a man page that explains options instead of just listing them.

You don’t. These settings are completely unrelated to user credentials.
Use password_command instead.

Which means I first need to create a file containing my encrypted password?

That depends on the password_command you choose. For GPG: Yes.
