Yep, nice.

Greg, is there any builtin support for keybox within Ruport?

I’ve been using dbi-dbrc to store database login/passwords in the past,
but they aren’t encrypted (just protected via perms). I may have to use
this if the API is friendly (I’ve only looked at the demo so far). :slight_smile:

I think the documentation for Keybox is pretty good, but feel free to
call me on it. Its all on the website as rdoc, You’ll probably want to
look at the Storage::Container documentation.

http://keybox.rubyforge.org/rdoc/index.html

Here’s a quick script to give you an idea of what you could do to roll
your own encrypted storage container using keybox.

% cat embedded_container.rb
require  'keybox'
include Keybox

PASSPHRASE = "passphrase"
DB_PATH    = "/tmp/database.yaml"

container = Storage::Container.new(PASSPHRASE,DB_PATH)

# use the already existing HostAccountEntry
container << HostAccountEntry.new("My DB Login",
                                  "db.example.com",
                                  "dbmanager",
                                  "a really good password")
container.save

# pretend we're in a different part of a program, or another program
c2 = Storage::Container.new(PASSPHRASE,DB_PATH)

# iterate over results
c2.find("example").each do |c|
    puts c
end
puts "=" * 20

# or we just now we want the first one found
puts c2.find(/com/).first

Let me know if you have any specific questions or approaches. And if
you have some requests for specific API’s or functionality let me know.
And patches are always good.

enjoy,

Kudos to you for choosing to patch HighLine enough to meet your needs
so we all might benefit.

Notice to all: HighLine now supports color schemes thanks to Jeremy.

maybe keybox should become a part of HighLine? sounds like a perfect
fit.

Daniel, no, not just yet.

I don’t think I’d go for built in support, but within the next couple
week we’ll have a system for Ruport Extensions and this would be a
great addition. So, if you’d like stop by the Ruport list and share
your ideas :slight_smile:

That’s completely up to Jeremy, but I’m not sure I see the need to
merge. Seems like we have the best of both worlds now.

Agreed. I kind of like that HighLine is more-or-less self contained
and though Keybox makes a great combination with it, I don’t know that
it’d really need to be in HighLine.

Definitely cool stuff all around though :slight_smile:

I’ll have to say I don’t see a reason to merge the two projects. Keybox
is first and foremost a password storage/management system. And
HighLine is a great library for doing terminal IO. Keybox just happens
to use HighLine for its terminal IO and pretty colours.
