http://84.248.250.61
skogpasswdman (passwdman until 2014-04-03)

NOTICE: I rarely remember to update on this site.

Skogpasswdman is a program for remembering, generating and updating passwords.

It stores the passwords and honey-pots in unencrypted XML files, they are expected to be kept safe. You don't need a password for your passwords.

It has infinite undo/redo.

It can tarballize the datafiles, including the infinite undo/redo. NOTE: It doesn't encrypt the tarball.

Polyvalent:

   shared engine               Python
   scripting interface         Python only, import skogpasswdmanapi
   CLI                         Python; ed pattern; verbose
   GUI                         Python; Gtk+ 3
   curses mode                 GUIish

Commands:

   skogpasswdmancli
   skogpasswdmangui        Graphical
   skogpasswdmanrli        curses mode

Works with Python 2.7 and Python 3.x, should work with Python 2.6.

BUGS:

   Cannot copy-paste to piece of paper.
   
   Sometimes the "Quit"-button must be clicked 3 times
   (I think it was on a live Debian Gnu/kFreeBSD distro).
   
   The --single-backup option in the CLI actually requires 2 undos.
   
   'honeypot' was a poor choice of name, but it grew legs and glued its feet
   to the ground.   The fake-password.
   
   I'm slowly working on a redesign (better undo/redo, no stupid honeypots).
   There should be a release of skogpasswdman2 and some coversion tool before 2015.
