Access your 1Password login items within tmux!

This plugin allows you to access you 1Password items within tmux, using 1Password's CLI. It works for personal 1Password accounts, as well as teams accounts.


This plugin relies on the following:

Key bindings

In any tmux mode:

  • prefix + u - list login items in a bottom pane.


Using Tmux Plugin Manager (recommended)

  1. Add plugin to the list of TPM plugins in .tmux.conf:

    set -g @plugin 'yardnsm/tmux-1password'
  2. Hit prefix + I to fetch the plugin and source it. You should now be able to use the plugin.

Manual Installation

  1. Clone this repo:

    $ git clone ~/some/path
  2. Source the plugin in your .tmux.conf by adding the following to the bottom of the file:

    run-shell ~/some/path/plugin.tmux
  3. Reload the environment by running:

    $ tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf


First, sign in with 1Password CLI by running the following in your terminal (you only need to do this once):

$ op signin <signinaddress> <emailaddress> <secretkey>

For 1Password personal accounts, <signinaddress> should be If you're using a team account, configure the @1password-subdomain option.

From now on, initiate the plugin by using the keybind (prefix + u by default). A new pane will be opened in the bottom, listing the appropriate login items. Press <Enter> to choose a login item, and its password will automatically be filled.

You may be required to perform a re-login (directly in the opened pane) since the 1Password CLI's sessions expires automatically after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Configuring login items in 1Password

In order to show only relevant login items and to maintain compatibility with sudolikeaboss, its required to set the value of the website field for each login item with the value of sudolikeaboss://local.


Customize this plugin by setting these options in your .tmux.conf file. Make sure to reload the environment afterwards.

Changing the default key-binding for this plugin

set -g @1password-key 'x'

Default: 'u'

Setting the signin subdomain

set -g @1password-subdomain 'acme'

Default: 'my'

Setting the default vault

set -g @1password-vault 'work'

Default: '' (all vaults)

Copy the password to clipboard

By default, the plugin will use send-keys to send the selected password to the targeted pane. By setting the following, the password will be copied to the system's clipboard, which will be cleared after 30 seconds.

set -g @1password-copy-to-clipboard 'on'

Default: 'off'
