pass file

pass file is a extension for adding arbitary files to the pass password store. Files will be encoded using base64 before encryption. This extension is inspired by gopass' binary function to which it is also compatible. Files stored with gopass binary can be retrieved with pass file and vice versa.


Usage: pass file action pass-name [path]
  store|add|attach: add new file to password store
  retrieve|show|cat: retrieve file from password store and print it to stdout
  edit|vi: edit a file (warning: unencrypted file will be opened with $EDITOR)


Storing a PNG picture and retrieving it.

pass file retrieve pics/secretpic > retrieved-picture.png

Alternativley you can also use shortcuts for attach and retrieve:

pass file add article my_super_secret_revelations.txt
pass file cat article

Use edit to edit a file:

pass file edit article
