passpie: Command-line password manager

Version Build Status Windows Build Status Coverage

Passpie is a command line tool to manage passwords from the terminal with a colorful and configurable interface. Use a master passphrase to decrypt login credentials, copy passwords to clipboard, syncronize with a git repository, check the state of your passwords, and more.

Password files are encrypted using GnuPG and saved into yaml text files. Passpie supports Linux, OSX and Windows.

What does it look like? Here is an example of a simple Passpie usage:

passpie init
passpie add --random
passpie add --pattern "[0-9]{5}[a-z]{5}"
passpie update foo@example --comment "Hello"
passpie copy


===========  =======  ==========  =========
Name         Login    Password    Comment
===========  =======  ==========  =========  bar      ********  foo      ********    Hello
===========  =======  ==========  =========
Password copied to clipboard
Check example remote passpie database:


pip install passpie

Or if you are on a mac, install via Homebrew:

brew install passpie


Passpie depends on GnuPG for encryption
