it would be very nice if one could open libreoffice with
soffice --password="passwordstring" [file]
soffice --passfile="/location/to/password/in/file" [file]
I'd like to store encrypted libreoffice files on dropbox, but I really do not want to type in my [random] password every time.
Thanks a lot!
Thanks for new idea
Writing password as plain text that anyone can see it.
I've described a scenario where it makes sense to supply the password in plaintext. Plus I've asked for keyfile support, so what's your problem with that?
Thanks for additional information.
Integration with system and desktop password handling will be also interesting
Assigning BUG to me.
I would like to work on this enhancement feature. If anyone else working on this bug, kindly let me know.
I tried to use soffice to automate conversion of XLSX encrypted files in a production environment, and ended up finding this ticket.
If we were to follow twelve-factor config recommendations (http://12factor.net/config), which is often used today in PaaS, then we could have passwords set in environment, then call:
Which is not stored in history etc.
I would definitely have a use for that (plenty of "ETL" types of work requires conversion of all kinds, and soffice is a great way to do that even on production servers).
