Pykeyring

by mandel on March 2nd, 2011

For those that do not what is the keyring module here is the official description:

The Python keyring lib provides a easy way to access the system keyring service from python. It can be used in any application that needs safe password storage.

The module is a very nice idea and has been rather useful during the Ubuntu One port. I just have a problem with it which is the lack of a method to delete a password.

I have forked the project in bitbucket and added the missing methods. Of course I have requested a pull from the original project, so unless there are problems the new code should be ‘landable’ (is landable even a word?) in trunk and usable.

For those that cannot wait for that, you can grab the code by doing:

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/mandel/pykeyring-delete-password
