Nice password manager project from gir on hackaday.io.

I am building a password manager on my Raspberry Pi Zero, using `pass` – the UNIX Password Manager as a platform. (See: passwordstore.org)

This Project was inspired by the Hackaday articles about using the RPi Zero as a USB Gadget from [LadyAda] and [gbaman], and the RPi-Wifi hack from [ajlitt].

Using a ‘Composite USB Gadget’ and the libcomposite driver, the Pi will present itself as a HID (Keyboard) and Ethernet adapter (SSH). Using the on-device OLED screen and the button matrix, you can select a desired password and username combination to send to the connected computer and enter the master passphrase.

Since `pass` can update the password store over `git`, I decided to give the ESP-hack a try, so you can fetch your latest passwords on the fly.

The Ethernet adapter will be useful for debugging, but also to change passwords on the device or perhaps serving a web panel to select and display passwords.
