Mercurial – Gnome Keyring Integration

I don’t know about you, but I was really bored about inserting my password again and again when pulling hg based projects.

Since I’m using Gnome, I decided to check if it was possible to integrate Mercurial with the Gnome Keyring.

Guess what:


Just download the extension and install it, by adding the following line under [extensions] in your .hgrc file:

hggnome-keyring = [PATH_TO_EXTENSION]/hggnome-keyring.py

When pulling from a hg repo, the system will prompt you for the password just for the first time🙂

One thought on “Mercurial – Gnome Keyring Integration

  1. Take a look at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/keyring
    If this was merged as extension, there would be general cross-platform solution
