Encryptr is a zero-knowledge, cloud-based e-wallet / password manager powered by Crypton.

Encryptr keeps it simple. It has three types of data it can store. Passwords, Credit Card numbers and general key/value pairs. It can easily be expanded to include other default entry types.

It is currently working on Android, iOS, and the Desktop – thanks to NW.js.



Getting started

  • clone the project
  • cd into the project folder
  • With commands:
    • npm install to install node_modules and js/css components (npm install will also run bower install).
    • cordova platform add ios and/or cordova platform add android
    • cordova-icon && cordova-splash
  • With script:
    • iOS: ./ ios
    • Android: ./ android
    • Desktop: ./ desktop

Build Encryptr

  • iOS: ./ ios
  • Android: ./ android
  • Desktop: ./ desktop
  • All platforms: ./ desktop ios android

First test

To make sure everything is set up from the above, run your first tests:

grunt test

See the output for the steps taken to produce the working test rig. Most of the steps have grunt commands you can use to do them individually.


JavaScript files are in src. They are kept out of the www tree so that they can be linted without trying to lint the concatenated and minified versions. However, the index.html should have a script tag only for the JavaScript files in either components (managed by Bower) or www/js.

Building and testing the project is normally done via the Grunt tasks below.

Grunt tasks

We use grunt commands to do most of the project operations, like:

  • running the app:

    • ios: grunt debug:ios
    • Android: grunt debug:android
  • testing: grunt test

  • linting the sources: grunt jshint

  • concatenating the sources: grunt concat

  • compiling the templates: grunt dot

See the steps taken for grunt test and grunt debug:XXX for the various operations needed to constitute the working app, and look at Gruntfile.js for the whole repertoire.
