You'll have to pry pass + dmenu from my cold, dead hands, but I'll definitely take a look at this if out of nothing more than curiosity. Have you considered making it a PWA and hosting on GH pages? Would also be super cool with the "add special characters" feature to be able to whitelist/blacklist characters.

edit: scratch gh pages and whitelisted special chars, skipped over the fact you've already got it hosted. You're already steps ahead of me 😅

And one more thing. You'll never have to type your passwords again because I copy the the password to your clipboard. That way you can

  1. draw your pattern once
  2. switch to any site key
  3. password is copied to your clipboard
  4. paste it in to log in at your favorite site.

Easy as that. I don't even know my passwords any more. I just draw my pattern and paste them in. And they're super strong random chars of SHA-256.

I've written the app as a Android, iOS, and WinForms app also so you can run it from anywhere. All source code to every version is available at my GitHub repos (github.com/raddevus?utf8=%E2%9C%93...) so everyone can examine the code and build it for themselves.

You can easily take the SPA web app that I built and copy it to your own web site and start using it there. It saves your sitekeys in your localstorage that can only be retrieved at that URL / DOMAIN.

I tried to make it completely open so people might start using it. I've written this up a bit at CodeProject.com also.
