  • pass-import

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

    My personal preference here is .env or .envrc files that use something like gnu password store in a subshell e.g. export FOO=$(pass my/database/creds) where those creds are pgp encrypted with my keys and possibly other peers' keys.
