This library reads and writes
Read a netrc file:
n = Netrc.read("sample.netrc")
If the file doesn't exist, Netrc.read will return an empty object. If the filename ends in ".gpg", it will be decrypted using GPG.
Read the user's default netrc file. On Unix:
%USERPROFILE%\_netrc (whichever is set first).
n = Netrc.read
Configure netrc to allow permissive files (with permissions other than 0600):
Netrc.configure do |config| config[:allow_permissive_netrc_file] = true end
Look up a username and password:
user, pass = n["example.com"]
Write a username and password:
n["example.com"] = user, newpass n.save
If you make an entry that wasn't there before, it will be appended to the end of the file. Sometimes people want to include a comment explaining that the entry was added automatically. You can do it like this:
n.new_item_prefix = "# This entry was added automatically\n" n["example.com"] = user, newpass n.save
