Alfred 2 integration with Pass


This is Alfred 2 integration with Pass - the standard Unix password manager. I took the idea for this from passmenu which is available for Linux.




To make this work you need:


  • pass (obviously) -- needs to be set up with password store in ~/.password-store/.
  • gpg-agent -- install with brew
  • pinentry-mac -- also install with brew (this is GUI frontend for gpg-agent).


Next configure gpg-agent to use pinentry-mac and not the bundled one, editing ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf:


pinentry-program /usr/local/bin/pinentry-mac


Basic Alfred commands:


pass <filter terms>


This will search through your passwords using the filter terms you provided.



Any suggestions are welcome. Also, I had to fight a bit with pinentry and gpg-agent, I hope this works for everyone.
