Library to store passwords in different keyring systems
A simple framework for storing passwords in certain keyring systems. This gem is heavily inspired by python-keyring.
The simplest case is to use a single global keyring instance:
require "keyring" Keyring.set_password("service", "user", "password") Keyring.get_password("service", "user") == "password"
This instance parses ./.rbkeyringrc and ~/.rbkeyringrc (in that order) for a valid configuration. The configuration determines the default module to use along with some parameters, e.g., the following configuration uses the kwallet module (available as keyring-kwallet gem):
--- module: keyring-kwallet params: folder: myfolder app: myapp
Alternatively you can create instances of your favourite keyring module:
simple = Keyring::SimpleKeyring.new kwallet = Keyring::KWalletKeyring.new folder: "myfolder", app: "myapp" simple.set_password("service", "user", kwallet.get_password("service", "user"))
The concrete parameters depend on the backend type.
gem install keyring
