I'm proud to announce the first release of sala, an encrypted
plaintext password store.

Sala is a command-line utility that lets you store passwords and other
bits of sensitive plain-text information to encrypted files on a
directory hierarchy. This makes it integrate nicely with the shell;
tab completion works, for example. It's also convenient to store your
passwords in version control, for example.

The stored information is protected by GnuPG's symmetrical encryption.

Sala has been written in Python. It requires gpg[1], the
GnuPGInterface[2] library, and (with the default configuration) uses
pwgen[3] to suggest good passwords, if it's installed.

To install: pip install sala
