Create a new database: ylva --init "/path/to/file.db"
Open and decrypt database: ylva --decrypt "/path/to/existing/file.db"
Close and encrypt database: ylva --encrypt
Ylva knows what database is currently active and encrypts it. Encrypting will ask you to type a master passphrase which is used for encryption.
Add an entry to an open database: ylva --add
If you want to export all entries to a file: ylva --show-passwords -A > file.txt
To show latest 10 entries: ylva --show-latest 10
Ylva supports settings default username for entries. To enable it, set an environment variable YLVA_DEFAULT_USERNAME value to the wanted default. If you want Ylva to default to an empty username define YLVA_DEFAULT_USERNAME, but leave it empty.
Ylva does not have a concept of "change the master password". When you encrypt an open database using --encrypt you can type a master password. This password is then required to decrypt the database. You can change the master password every time when you encrypt the database, if you want to.
