pass update

A pass extension that provides an easy flow for updating passwords.

Description

pass update extends the pass utility with an update command providing an easy flow for updating passwords. It supports path, directory and wildcard update. Moreover, you can select how to update your passwords by automatically generating new passwords or manually setting your own.

pass update assumes that the first line of the password file is the password and so only ever updates the first line unless the --multiline option is specified.

By default, pass update prints the old password and waits for the user before generating a new one. This behaviour can be changed using the provided options.

Usage

pass update 2.1 - A pass extension that provides an
                  easy flow for updating passwords.

Usage:
        pass update [-h] [-n] [-l <s>] [-c | -p] [-p | -m]
                    [-e <r>] [-i <r>] [-E] [-f] pass-names
            Provide an interactive solution to update a set of passwords.
            pass-names can refer either to password store path(s) or to
            directory.

            It prints the old password and waits for the user before generating
            a new one. This behaviour can be changed using the provided options.

            Only the first line of a password file is updated unless the
            --multiline option is specified.

    	Options:
            -c, --clip        Write the password to the clipboard.
            -n, --no-symbols  Do not use any non-alphanumeric characters.
            -l, --length <s>  Provide a password length.
            -p, --provide     Let the user specify a password by hand.
            -m, --multiline   Update a multiline password.

            -f, --force       Force update.
