Wrapper for Bitwarden https://github.com/bitwarden/cli and Rofi
This is a work in progress to get the BitWarden cli functionality in an easy Rofi menu. On selecting an entry, the password is copied to your clipboard for 5 seconds. During those 5 seconds, a notification is shown indicating which password you are copying at that time.
You can either execute the script from a terminal or by binding it to a key combination in your window manager.
Usage: bwmenu [options] -- [rofi options]
Options: --help Show this help text and exit.
--version Show version information and exit.
--auto-lock Automatically lock the Vault seconds after last unlock. Use 0 to lock immediatly. Use -1 to disable. Default: 900 (15 minutes)
-c , --clear , --clear= Clear password from clipboard after this many seconds. Defaults: 5 seconds.
-C, --no-clear Don't automatically clear the password from the clipboard. This disables the default --clear option.
--show-password Show the first 4 characters of the copied password in the notification.
