keyring_jeepney 0.2

A pure Python keyring backend using the Freedesktop secret service.

The Python keyring lib is a cross-platform interface to store and retrieve passwords and other secret information.

This is a keyring backend for Linux that only needs pure Python dependencies. Like the main SecretService backend, it uses DBus to talk to the secret service daemon. However, the SecretService backend relies on system libraries, which makes installation more difficult. This backend uses Jeepney, a pure Python DBus backend.

To use this module, simply install it and use the keyring API as normal; if the main SecretService backend is not available, keyring should automatically detect and use keyring_jeepney.

To explicitly use this module:

import keyring
import keyring_jeepney
keyring.set_keyring(keyring_jeepney.Keyring())

The standard SecretService backend has been much better tested than this one, so you probably want to use that one where practical.
