GeanyPG is a plugin for Geany that allows the user to encrypt, decrypt
and verify signatures with GnuPG.


After installed successfully, load the plugin in Geany's plugin manager
and a new menu item in the Tools menu will appear.

If any text is selected, only the selected text will be encrypted/
signed/decrypted. When encrypting a message you can choose to sign at
the same time.
If a passphrase is needed, the GPGME library will decide how the user
is prompted. Usually this will use gpg-agent. If gpg-agent is disabled,
pinentry (see man 1 pinentry) will be used.


You can checkout the current source code from the Subversion repository
at Get the code from:

svn checkout

included to the default distribution must be licensed under the same

Known issues

At the moment, the use of pinentry is only supported on unix-like
systems. On Windows gpg-agent has to be used.
