Top 9 Shell password-manager Projects

  • Purse

  • pass-tomb

    A pass extension that helps you keep the whole tree of passwords encrypted inside a Tomb.

    Project mention: KeePass is the free, open source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager | | 2022-09-06

    By itself, Passwordstore will not encrypt file names or directory names, which might not be a problem if no one else has access to the machine that hosts your git repo, but if that's not the case (even if it's a private repo on whatever platform), you might want to use either Tomb or git-crypt-remote to have full end-to-end encryption. There are even some tools that glue tomb and pass together ( for one), though I'm not sure what's the situation is like when it comes to mobile integration with tomb/git-crypt-remote.
