turtle-cpm is a command line tool to manage passwords, a replacement of the now gone cpm project.
The latest version is v7.5, released on 2023-02-02. See the release notes.
- Simple database format: encrypted SQLite (via
gpg), tracking machines, services, users and passwords
- Supports plain passwords and also Time-based one-time password (TOTP) shared secrets, calculating the actual TOTP code
- Can import the original cpm's XML database
- A little bit better than trivial search: you can search for e.g.
mybankwithout telling if you are searching for a service type or machine name
Naturally it lacks telemetry, unlike e.g. 1Password.
Check out the project's website for a list of features and installation and usage information.
cpm has been used on Linux, but nothing was done intentionally to prevent it from working on e.g. macOS or Windows.

The turtle-cpm codebase is independent from the original cpm. It's turtle because this project is not in C, so might be a little bit slower (though not significantly in practice).
