Shroud is a password manager written in Guile which uses GnuPG in the backend. See Shroud’s website at this link. This package is an Emacs interface to Shroud using the Buffers User Interface library.

Shroud stores secrets as a plain text encrypted using GnuPG. Particularly, in Lisp’s S-expressions, in a form of associaton lists. This provides the dual benefit that, the file is trivial to parse by machine, yet at the same time, is perfectly readable/editable by a human.

You can view, copy and edit secrets from Emacs.

This manual describes how to use Emacs-Shroud and some of the ways to customise it; it corresponds to the Emacs-Shroud version 1.1.
