    You should be using Keychain for all secrets. You can specify an "access group" that can be used across processes. The API sucks so I use the keychain-swift wrapper.

    The only one of those that I didn't write, was KeychainSwift[0]. It makes dealing with the Keychain easy, and is a very simple dependency. If it went off the rails, I'd write something like it, myself.

    All the others, are in my own repos, as top-shelf-quality open-source modules.
