Requirements

There are no requirements outside of the Python standard library.

Example

The following example will attempt to get the password for PostgreSQL running on localhost:5432 to the postgres database as the postgres user.

import pgpasslib

password = pgpasslib.getpass('localhost', 5432, 'postgres', 'postgres')
if not password:
    raise ValueError('Did not find a password in the .pgpass file')
