What is gopass?
gopass is a password manager for the command line written in Go. It supports all major operating systems (Linux, MacOS, BSD) as well as Windows.
Gopass is a versatile command line based password manager that is being developed with the following principles in mind:
Easy: For technical users (i.e. those who are used to the command line) it should be easy to get started with gopass. Secure: Security is hard. We aim to make it as easy as possible while still providing a good level of protection against common adversaries. Caution: If your personal threat level is very high, we might not offer a good tool for you. Extensible: While Gopass includes a fair amount of useful features, we can't cover every use-case. To support more special use cases we want to provide a clean and simple API to integration gopass into your own binaries.
Password management should be simple and follow Unix philosophy. With pass, each secret lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the secret. These encrypted files may be organized into meaningful folder hierarchies, copied from computer to computer, and, in general, manipulated using standard command line file management utilities. - passwordstore.org
Our target audience are professional developers and sysadmins (and especially teams of those) who are well versed with a command line interface. One explicit goal for this project is to make it more approachable to semi- and non-technical users in the long term as well. We go by the UNIX philosophy and try to do one thing and do it well - always providing stellar user experience and sane, simple interfaces.
