I’ve been using FPM (Figaro Password Manager) for quite some time with entire satisfaction.
However, it relies on unmaintained technology, (Gnome 1.x I think), and will be removed from lenny, so I envision to switch to another more recent tool for managing the passwords of my various systems, accounts, application setup passwords, etc.
I have reviews revelation which seems to fit some of my needs, but I’m afraid it is unmaintained at the moment. As it is written in Python, I could probably live with that, but I cannot end-up becoming a contributor to any program I use, can I ? 😉
Other alternatives may be keepassx… but it’s C++, and crossplatform… and I’m not fan of these features anyway (QT or windows look, bah). Also it has less import/export options than revelation.
One of the advantages of FPM was that even if it was a GUI program, the format of password store could also be managed with Kedpm (Ked Password Manager), a command-line tool. I’m afraid I’m losing a feature with the switch to revelation, then (still, command-line interface seems on the TODO list of revelation).
So we’ll see what happens… in the meantime, I’ve filed a couple patches for revelation in Debian’s BTS, just for the fix of the bugs I encountered during the quick import of FPM passwords.
Dear lazyweb, any suggestions on how to find a maintained, python based, Gnome password management tool with a command-line interface ?
