One True Password


One True Password is a set of bash functions that I wrote to be able to safely store sensitive data in a cross-platform standard way. You can think of it as a very basic 1Password.

Outputs are done in clear text in your terminal, don't use it if people are looking over your shoulder. At least it's safer than Post-It notes.


Copy or source the file in your .bashrc file.


# open the password storage in your editor
# you will be prompted for a password upon exiting the editor
$ otpe
# now your secrets are safely encrypted
# use otpl to search for an entry in your storage
$ optl some_keyword
