  • KeePass2.x

    unofficial mirror of KeePass2.x source code

    I use Keepass at work. It uses AES-256 encryption and has the ability to use Windows authentication or a simple password. I put the key files on a shared drive and break the passwords down into 3 levels.

  • pass-import

    A pass extension for importing data from most of the existing password manager.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • vaultwarden

    Unofficial Bitwarden compatible server written in Rust, formerly known as bitwarden_rs

    If official bitwarden isn't your thing, try vaultwarden, This works with all the standard bitwarden apps. We've been running this for the last few months and like it.

  • keepassxc

    KeePassXC is a cross-platform community-driven port of the Windows application “Keepass Password Safe”.

    I can recommend keepassxc if you have a Yubikey.
