I can't figure out how to use the built-in ssh agent on mac OS. For obvious reasons I don't want to enter my ssh password into a clear text file, nor do I want to enter the passphrase for my ssh key into a clear text file. Do you know how I can convince your tool to use the standard mac OS ssh agent so the password stored in the keychain will be used?

first of all, thanks for the plugin. I would like to ask, if it is possible to load configuration from ssh-config and load the private key from there. I am using Mac OS, but when I have put the name of the server as in ssh-config, it was not located. Also, the passwordless login does not work either.
Just as a reminder, I am also having this issue on Mac OS. I have the same problem as the original poster.
The below config works if I set my key file passphrase, but for the same reasons as the original poster I would rather not do that.
My config (with some things clearly changed):
@liximomo It would be really nice if the agent socket path could be detected, or some method of saying "just use $SSH_AUTH_SOCK please". It is a, albeit minor, annoyance to have to modify that config for each project each time the socket is regenerated, typically on reboot.
