Buttercup Browser Extension
Buttercup credentials manager extension for the browser.
This browser extension allows users to interface with password archives authored by the Buttercup password manager (though it does not require the application to be installed).
The extension can remotely connect to archives via Buttercup's common communication protocols (WebDAV, Dropbox etc.).
This extension uses Locust to perform login form detection. Issues relating to the detection and operation of login forms should be opened there.
Other browsers will be supported in order of request/popularity. Issues created for unsupported browsers, or for browsers not on the roadmap, may be closed without warning.
The browsers listed above, running on Windows, Mac or Linux on a desktop platform. This extension is not supported on any mobile or tablet devices.
The browser extension can be controlled from the popup menu, which is launched by pressing the Buttercup button in the browser menu. This menu displays a list of archives as well as settings and other items.
When viewing pages that contain login forms, Buttercup can assist logging in when you interact with the login buttons (displayed beside detected login inputs).
Buttercup can also remember new logins, which are detected as they occur.
You can block Buttercup from detecting forms and inputs by applying the attribute
<input type="email" data-bcupignore="true" />
