Helm-pass is a helm interface for pass, the standard unix password manager.


You may clone helm-pass from its git repository, or install it from MELPA. To load it, assuming you use the excellent use-package package, it is as simple as:

(use-package helm-pass)

or, in standard Emacs:

(require 'helm-pass)


The main command is helm-pass which will list all the passwords that pass knows about and allow you to perform various commands on them. The default (i.e. just pressing RET) will copy the password to your clipboard.
