Passilic is a frontend for the Pass password manager. Pass is a simple Unix password manager where each password is stored GPG encrypted in a file. Passilic allows you to easily browse the passwords. Tapping a passwords prompts the "master key" (your GPG key passphrase) and copies the password into clipboard. The password is automatically cleared from the clipboard after 45 seconds.

Passilic is a free and open source project under GPLv3 license.

On my Sony Xperia 10 II it's not working. I can enter a password entry but after saving it's not visible.

It doesn't find a file/folder to watch, it seems.

The "Cannot read property" messages are mumbo jumbo.

Thanks for the update!

While 0.4 version worked like a charm, I got the error mentioned before with passilic 0.5 : invalid option --pinentry-mode=loopback. The only updated gnupg I could find was from yeoldegrove's repository but I got a conflict error trying to install it.

dvratil's picture

Fixed :)

ekari's picture

Works great, thanks!

jfebrer's picture

Great work! It's a fantastic app.

Ashitaka's picture

Hi dvratil, can you help me? Since i updated my Fairphone to SF3.0.2.8, (2 days ago) i'm not able to use Passilic. At first it was gpg2 unable to find my private key in .kbx. Now i managed to import the key, but in passilic it say: invalid option "--pinentry-mode=loopback".
pass instead works fine...
I don't understand
gpg2 version is 2.0.4, isn't it outdated? But everything was working just fine before updating

dvratil's picture

Hi Ashitaka, try updating gpg2 package manually via pkcon - I have gpg 2.2.1 on my SF3 which recognizes the option.

minitreintje's picture

I have the same issue, which repository are talking about? Pkcon only shows 2.0.4 gnupg

EDIT: Found it, never mind :)

Ashitaka's picture

Aah found it, i had the repo disabled so i wasn't able to find the update. Thanks for the fast reply and, of course, for the awesome app!
Another question, is it possible to set up password caching?

johansmitsnl's picture

Could you explain how you did it? I can only see the 2.0.4 version.

dvratil's picture

As of the latest Passilic update, gpg 2.0 should work just fine (it looks like gpg 2.4 is not present in the Jolla repos anymore since Nuuksio)

dvratil's picture

You mean the gpg key passphrase caching? That should be possible with some gpg-agent configuration, but I haven't played with that yet. And I don't really want my app to just store your passphrase in memory.

Ashitaka's picture

Yes i mean that. i totally agree that it should be done by the gpg-agent and not by your app, but it would be nice to have some istruction within the app. Anyway, thank you again, i'll give a look at that :D

Ahoj Dvratil, vypada to ze jsi dalsi cesky fanda tohoto skveleho systemu, pojd se pridat k nam do skupiny Sailfish OS Ceska republika na facebooku :)

minitreintje's picture

Is it possible to generate passwords on Sailfish using the terminal?

bomo's picture

Or try 'pwgen-cli' from openrepos

minitreintje's picture

I will take a look at that package, thanks!

dvratil's picture

You can install "pass" to manage the passwords from the command line, it can also generate new ones with various options. I'm planning to add "New Password" option to Passilic in the next version.

minitreintje's picture

I already looked in the repos but I couldn't find this package?
