.new(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Create a new instance from the given options. Must be released either executing the operations inside a block, or executing #release afterwards.

Examples:

ctx = GPGME::Ctx.new
# operate on ctx
ctx.release
GPGME::Ctx.new do |ctx|
  # operate on ctx
end

#set_passphrase_callback(passfunc, hook_value = nil) ⇒ Object Also known as: set_passphrase_cb

Set the passphrase callback with given hook value. passfunc should respond to call with 5 arguments.

  • obj the parameter :passphrase_callback_value passed when creating the GPGME::Ctx object.

  • uid_hint hint as to what key are we asking the password for. Ex:

    CFB3294A50C2CFD7 Albert Llop <mrsimo@example.com>

  • passphrase_info

  • prev_was_bad 0 if it's the first time the password is being asked, 1 otherwise.

  • fd file descriptor where the password must be written too.

Expects a Method object which can be obtained by the method method (really..).

ctx.set_passphrase_callback(MyModule.method(:passfunc))

Note that this function doesn't work with GnuPG 2.0. You can use either GnuPG 1.x, which can be installed in parallel with GnuPG 2.0, or GnuPG 2.1, which has loopback pinentry feature (see #pinentry_mode).

Examples:

this method will simply return maria as password.

def pass_function(obj, uid_hint, passphrase_info, prev_was_bad, fd)
  io = IO.for_fd(fd, 'w')
  io.puts "maria"
  io.flush
end

this will interactively ask for the password

def passfunc(obj, uid_hint, passphrase_info, prev_was_bad, fd)
  $stderr.write("Passphrase for #{uid_hint}: ")
  $stderr.flush
  begin
    system('stty -echo')
    io = IO.for_fd(fd, 'w')
    io.puts(gets)
    io.flush
  ensure
    (0 ... $_.length).each do |i| $_[i] = ?0 end if $_
