A simple, command-line password manager

pass is a simple, command-line password manager that stores each password in a separate text file, encrypted with a GPG key.

Passwords can be generated, managed and modified. They can also be temporarily copied to the clipboard from the command line. Finally, `pass` can be accessed by more complex interfaces, or integrated into other applications.
