pass provides a thin wrapper around the pass password management tool for use with Alfred (2 or 3). Its intent is to make copying passwords while browsing the web quick and easy. It also supports the other functionality of pass, including password editing, generation, viewing, and git commands, all accomplished by passing through commands to the terminal. Will use iTerm (beta 3) by default. If you don’t have this terminal, see below for how to use Terminal.app
The recommended place to get pass is at Packal. This will enable it to be updated in the future with the Packal workflow.
The workflow now supports Terminal.app as well. To use this, open the workflow in Alfred. In each
Run Script bubble, change the word
execute_terminal.scpt. Now the workflow will use Terminal.app.
This is the only keyword provided. However, the script called in the script filter handles some other keywords to provide autocomplete, including:
pass git pass add pass rm
All the commands for pass are supported, and will be passed through to the terminal.
The default use case is as follows:
This will search for a password of pass-name, autocompleting the results, then copy the result when it is selected.
Must have pass, and its requirement, gpg. Also should already have a key, and have set up the .password-store directory. This is easiest with
brew install pass, then follow the
instructions in man pass
