Keyring-rs

CI Crates.io API Documentation on docs.rs

A cross-platorm library and utility to manage passwords.

Online docs are currently limited to linux, as cross-platform autogenerated docs are not a thing yet. For osx or windows, try cargo doc -p keyring --open.

Published on crates.io

Usage

Currently supports Linux, macOS, and Windows. Please file issues if you have any problems or bugs!

To use this library in your project add the following to your Cargo.toml file:

[dependencies]
keyring = "0.10.1"

This will give you access to the keyring crate in your code. Now you can use the new function to get an instance of the Keyring struct. The new function expects a service name and an username with which it accesses the password.

You can get a password from the OS keyring with the get_password function.

extern crate keyring;

use std::error::Error;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  let service = "my_application_name";
  let username = "username";

  let keyring = keyring::Keyring::new(&service, &username);

  let password = keyring.get_password()?;
  println!("The password is '{}'", password);

  Ok(())
}

Passwords can also be added to the keyring using the set_password function.

extern crate keyring;

use std::error::Error;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  let service = "my_application_name";
  let username = "username";

  let keyring = keyring::Keyring::new(&service, &username);

  let password = "topS3cr3tP4$$w0rd";
  keyring.set_password(&password)?;

  let password = keyring.get_password()?;
  println!("The password is '{}'", password);

  Ok(())
}

And they can be deleted with the delete_password function.

extern crate keyring;

use std::error::Error;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  let service = "my_application_name";
  let username = "username";

  let keyring = keyring::Keyring::new(&service, &username);

  keyring.delete_password()?;

  println!("The password has been deleted");

  Ok(())
}

On macOS, keychain object from specific path can be opened using Keyring::use_keychain which gives the flexibility to open non-default keychains. Note that this is currently feature-gated, and is considered unstable, and is subject to change without a semver major version change.

In Cargo.toml, you need to turn the feature on:

keyring = { version = "0.10.0", features = ["macos-specify-keychain"] }
extern crate keyring;

use std::error::Error;

fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  let service = "my_application_name";
  let username = "username";

  let keyring = keyring::Keyring::use_keychain(Path::new("/Library/Keychains/System.keychain"), &service, &username);

  let password = "topS3cr3tP4$$w0rd";
  keyring.set_password(&password)?;

  let password = keyring.get_password()?;
  println!("The password is '{}'", password);

  Ok(())
}

Errors

The get_password, set_password and delete_password functions return a Result which, if the operation was unsuccessful, can yield a KeyringError.

The KeyringError struct implements the error::Error and fmt::Display traits, so it can be queried for a cause and an description using methods of the same name.

Caveats

Linux

  • The application name is hardcoded to be rust-keyring.

Dev Notes

  • If you're running tests, please use RUST_TEST_THREADS=1 cargo test
  • for TravisCI, osx builds and tests, but linux only builds. Need to figure out how to mock secret service.
