Feature request: permit use of a pinentry program to supply master password to CLI

Community Member

The op CLI tool uses native (Go?) methods to accept the password via STDIN. Would it be possible to support the use of standard pinentry tools to accept the password? These tools provide GUI- or terminal-based password input prompts that don't necessarily interrupt the flow of the calling script, providing a better user experience for callers.

Thank you!

op version:

$ /usr/local/bin/op -v

  • Hi @rossimpson!

    Thank you for your suggestion! Improving the user experience is important to us. Making it easier and non-blocking to enter passwords would certainly create a good experience! I will share your suggestion with the team.
