An extension for pass (the standard Unix password manager) to append a pass-style password and copy it to the clipboard before a
pass insert -m call.
pass generate is cool.
pass insert -m # <- multiline is cool. ¿Por qué no los dos? (Why not both?) Well, the answer is that it would be annoying to do in the pass code, I think.
Usage: pass append [filename] Generates a strong password, copies it to the clipboard, and runs pass insert -m [filename] Based on the pass apppend extension, itself based on the pass backup extension. pass append help Prints this help message. pass append version Prints the version number. Example: pass append services/amazon Generates a strong password, copies it to the clipboard, and starts pass insert -m services/amazon
Let's generate a password for this example
pass append web/digitalocean Copied new password to clipboard: Gm,G^98w8e3YZ)Op&pi4v+Q>I Enter contents of test/test and press Ctrl+D when finished: Gm,G^98w8e3YZ)Op&pi4v+Q>I firstname.lastname@example.org [master 1dd0d0b] Add generated password for test/test.
For installation download and place this bash script file
the passwordstore extension directory specified with
By default this is
$ cp apppend.bash ~/.password-store/.extensions
Give the file execution permissions:
$ chmod 700 ~/.password-store/.extensions/apppend.bash
Set the variable
PASSWORD_STORE_ENABLE_EXTENSIONS, to true to enable extensions, e.g., in your
$ export PASSWORD_STORE_ENABLE_EXTENSIONS=true
Download and source the bash completion file
pass-apppend.bash.completion for bash completion.
$ source ~/.password-store/.bash-completions/pass-apppend.bash.completion
pass apppend filename/identifier to save your first password using this method, e.g.:
$ pass apppend web/digitalocean
tarto be installed for zipping and compression.

Both files are fairly small: 95 lines (script) and 17 lines (autocompletion) respectively. You can check them yourself quickly. No need to trust anyone.
This extension is heavily based on the pass-backup extension. Because
pass-backup is open source, it was easy to take its architecture and use it for a different purpose.
