It’s always painful to enter passwords in apps. Sometimes you just can’t remember, especially if you don’t use them on a regular basis. Keyrings fortunatly are really popular now (Gnome-keyring, KWallet) and provide a great way to manage your passwords, only requiring the unique keyring password.
The Python keyring library offers a unique and simple library to access the active keyring on your system.
Based on a idea by Tarez Ziadé (official Python distutils module maintainer) and coded by Kang Zhang during the 2009 Google Summer of Code, this library aims to be merged when mature to the official Python getpass module.
Python-keyring is looking for a sponsor. The Debian package for python-keyring has been uploaded on mentors.debian.net accessible at the following urls :
