= Yak http://yaks.me/yak == Description Yak is a simple command line app to store and retrieve passwords securely under a master password, and allows one password repository per system user. Retrieved passwords get copied to the clipboard by default. == Configuration Config can be set in ~/.yakrc. Session is the length of time in seconds that Yak will remember the master password: :session : 30 If using sessions is not desired and you want to enter the master password every time, set: :session : false Always set the password by default, use: :password : plain_text_password Turn off password confirmation prompts when a new password is entered: :confirm_prompt : false Using bash completion for stored keys: :bash_completion : true #=> completion only available during session :bash_completion : :always #=> completion always available (keys exposed) == Usage Yak will always prompt you for the master password unless a yak session is present, or the :password option is set in ~/.yakrc. Yak sessions get refreshed everytime yak is called. Adding a new password: $ yak -a gmail # prompts user for gmail password to save $ yak -a gmail my_password # uses my_password as gmail password and overwrites old value Retrieving a saved password: $ yak gmail # copies the gmail password to the clipboard $ yak -p gmail >> my_password # outputs gmail password to stdout Removing a stored password: $ yak -r gmail # deletes gmail entry completely Changing the master password: $ yak -n # prompts for old password first, then the new password Listing keys: $ yak --list # returns all saved keys $ yak --list key # returns all keys matching /key/ $ yak --list ^key$ # returns unique key matching /^key$/
