Python implementation of 1Password keychains
HTML Python JavaScript
Latest commit 6d96ab4 Nov 10, 2015 @Roguelazer Merge pull request #13 from hayderimran7/patch-1
Update the requirements for system libs


Build Status

onepasswordpy is a pure-python library for manipulating 1Password's .agilekeychain files. Right now, it supports decrypting and loading all data types. Creation of new items will come in a future release. It will also support .cloudkeychain files in a future release. See TODO.markdown for other things that might come in future releases.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am not in any way affiliated with AgileBits, the makers of 1Password. Their software is awesome and you should probably go buy it. Please don't sue me!


This project depends on the following major third-party libraries:

  • simplejson
  • cryptography

In addition to that, you also need to have following crypto libs installed on your system:

  • On Ubuntu ( openssl-dev , libffi-dev )
  • On RHEL/SuSE ( openssl-devel, libffi48-devel )

This is a human-readable denormalized list; for the actual list, look at

There are three different providers for the most expensive crypto operation (key derivation via PBKDF2):

  • nettle (via ctypes): finishes test suite in 0.35s
  • cryptography: finishes test suite in 1.4s

These will be imported in that order. If you don't have nettle, everything will fall back gracefully to cryptography (which is also used for the speedy symmetric crypto).

Unit tests are written using nose and unittest2; you should install those (with yum, apt-get, pip, or whatever else suits your fancy) and run nosetests tests to run the tests.

This library ought to work with Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.3+.
