CLI Noob question
Have been using MPW for a few years now, but it always was the java gui version. (.jar looks very java at least)
Now i run a linux machine and decided to get my feet wet with the CLI version. So far so good, got it working. 2 Things:
When i type in my master password, it shows on screen. Is there a way to turn that off (like any other prompt where you shall enter a password in a terminal), and 2:
actually copying the generated password to clipboard isn't as straightforward as it used to be, since the gui*s "press enter to copy" as well as ctrl-C don't exist in terminal world.
I guess there are ways around #2, do you have a suggestion on how to fix/address #1?
Thank you very much!

You can use
Command ⌘ instead of
Control ^ on Mac

Regarding #1, if you compile the CLI with support for ncurses, it will be able to do this for you.
When building, pay attention to its output. If it reports ncurses is missing, install the necessary dependencies (you'll want to look in your package manager for a development version of the ncurses library).
Regarding #2, the CLI comes shipped with a small bash script that will combine the CLI app with some tools for copying the password to the clipboard. The
installscript should offer to do the work for you, or you can just peek around and find the pieces you need.

Finding ncurses and json-c dev versions did the trick.
It works perfectly now.
This thread can now safely be closed.
