= purse

http://quirkey.rubyforge.org/purse

== DESCRIPTION:

A simple way of storing private/sensitive info and then sharing it with others using git

== SYNOPSIS:

Purse stores information in a two level folder system. The basic piece of stored information is a 'note'. 
A 'pocket' is a folder containing one to many notes. A *pocket* can be synced between mutlple users/computers 
using a remote git repository.

To configure for the first time:

	purse

and follow the handy on screen instructions.

To create a new pocket/note.

	purse pocketname notename

It will prompt you asking if you want to create the note.
Once you've edited in your favorite editor and saved, purse 
will use Blowfish to encrypt the note with the password you provide. 

Then you can display the note with:

	purse pocketname notename

or edit with:

	purse pocketname notename --edit

Each time it will ask you for the password you initially provided to encrypt it.

For more commands/info run:

	purse --help

== REQUIREMENTS:

purse requires a couple of gems, namely 
	highline -- for command line tools
	termios		
	crypt	 -- for encryption
	git		 -- for uh, git

== INSTALL:

	sudo gem install purse

then run
	
	purse
