A simple account manager. This is NOT secure, excuse me ;p.


Install it yourself as:

> gem install acm


At first, init database:

> acm init

The database file is saved as "ENV['ACMDB']" or "ENV['HOME']/.accounts", in YAML. Set location of database file to environment variable 'ACMDB', if you want.

Add account:

> acm add [email protected]
(acm) Key? email
(acm) Value? [email protected]
(acm) Key? password
(acm) Value? xxxxxxxx
(acm) Key?                         # Enter to exit.

Then added account to database.

List account(s):

> acm list
[email protected]

Show details:

> acm show [email protected]
Account: [email protected]
  email: [email protected]
  password: xxxxxxxx

Update value of key:

> acm update [email protected] password yyyyyyyy

> acm show [email protected]
Account: [email protected]
  email: [email protected]
  password: yyyyyyyy

Remove key and value:

> acm remove-key [email protected] password

> acm show [email protected]
Account: [email protected]
  email: [email protected]

Rename account:

> acm rename-account [email protected] Gmail

> acm show Gmail
Account: Gmail
  email: [email protected]

And remove account:

> acm remove-account [email protected]
Account: [email protected]
  email: [email protected]

Are you sure?(y/n) y               # Enter 'y' to remove.

> acm show [email protected]
No such account: [email protected]
