I have been thinking that I really need to start keeping my config encrypted but I also don't want to be entering my password all of the time. I currently use
RCLONE_CONFIG_PASS and the suggested method to enter it in non-plaint-text. But that (a) is still in the environment variables and (b) works session to session.
What I want is something more like how ssh-agent works. You enter your password to a daemon process and that stays in memory until a restart (or the process is killed).
It is pretty clear that it would make use of
I am absolutely not above writing my own. I may do it anyway. But I was wondering if there were any existing ideas out there?
If I made my own, it would probably be a python too that deamonized itself after prompting and would listen on either a socket or something like that. Then I could have something like
export RCLONE_PASSWORD_COMMAND="curl http://localhost:XYZ"
But again, I am wondering if this is a solved problem.
