User:Fstirlitz/store password for burp with libsecret

From ArchWiki
Warning: burp is obsolete; AUR is managed with git now.

you need to have libsecret installed of course, and a daemon which implements the secret service spec. currently only gnome-keyring does, but ksecretservice will follow (as i am told)

  1. put your username in ~/.config/burp/burp.conf
  2. execute this command:
    $ secret-tool store --label=AUR target aur
    then type your password
  3. put this in your ~/.bashrc:
    alias burp='burp -p `secret-tool lookup target aur`'
  4. restart your shell and you're set: from now on burpAUR will not bother you with password prompts.
