Yapk is a stand alone, browser independent password manager for any number of sites. It uses gpg as a backend encryption program for your password database.
- What browser(s) does yapk work with?
Yapk is a stand alone application. As such it does not require any particular browser.
- Does it support non-http protocols?
Yes, yapk accepts any string of printable characters as a url. Therefore you can use http://, smb://, ftp://, ssh://, or any protocol real or not.
- Do I need to configure a gpg key pair?
No, yapk uses a symmetrical algorithm, so all you have to do is set a password for your database.
- What if I forget my yapk database password?
Are you familliar with the initials "SOL?" Yapk will store any and all passwords, but remembering the password for your yapk database is entirely your own responsibility.
- What do I need to compile it?
To compile it, just download it, untar it and run "./configure" followed by "make", then "make install". Of course you need to have gcc, make, and gtk+ libraries and headers installed.
- Why does the README file contain a request not to port yapk to Windows?
Because I am working on a similar commercial product (with a different name and different code base) for Windows. I cannot of course prohibit you from porting it, but I would prefer if you didn't.
