Assword is a secure password manager that relies on your OpenPGP key
for security and is designed to integrate in a minimal fashion into
any X11 window manager.
Passwords and context strings are stored in a single
OpenPGP-encrypted and signed file (meaning entry contexts are not
exposed to the filesystem).  Along with a simple command-line
interface, there is a streamlined GUI meant for X11 window manager
integration.  When invoked, the GUI produces a prompt to search
stored contexts.  New entries can also easily be created.  Passwords
are securely retrieved without displaying on the screen.  Multiple
retrieval methods are available, including auto-typing them directly
into an X11 window (default), or inserting them into the X11 clipboard.
