Pass is the standard unix password manager, a lightweight password manager that uses GnuPG and Git for Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X. With pass, each password lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the password. 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.

Said about pass as an alternative
A great alternative for those who are looking for a native password manager. Die electron! It has clients for google chrome, firefox, android, linux (qt) and cli.
Positive comment • 9 months ago • as an alternative to Bitwarden
Pass stores your passwords locally and is open source. It's command-line based and you have to know a little bit about GPG. But there is an interface called QtPass which works well, and you can even get browser integration. Otherwise, try KeepassXC with either PassIFox or ChromeIPass for the browser integration.

Open source, proven technology, multi-platform, but the various interfaces all need work (I haven't tried the Android one...).
