Any plans to develop a browser plugin ?

Jul 2, 2014 at 10:42 AM
Hi, I am newly using KP2A (while having been using Keepass on Windows for a while) and on the whole, I find KP2A very usable (I use it on a tablet with a physical keyboard, running Android 4.2.1 if my memory serves)
Thanks for the lots of good work (and careful design) already put into KP2A.

I had just a question for now: do you plan at some point to develop any browser plugin that would work in the way KeeFox (for Keepass + Firefox) does, basically a two-way encrypted TCP/IP communication (validated at initialization by the user) between the browser and KP2A applications.

This could allow, not only to fill-in browser ID/password fields securely with values from the KP2A database (which the KP2A keyboard manages nicely), but also to have KP2A retrieve the ID/password entry page URL from the browser, in order to find itself the relevant entry(es) in the database, avoiding the need for the user to search/select the entry in the database ... and possibly allowing to auto-fill the ID/password fields in the browser without user intervention ...

Of course such a plugin would only work for Android browsers that allow plugins (and it might be a different development for each such browser) but I think that the idea has merits.

I definitely think this would be a great way to get passwords into the browser. However, at the moment the major browsers do not exhibit plugin interfaces in a way that would allow to develop such a plugin (at least as far as I know).

Okay (I mean, too bad ...)
Thanks for the quick reply anyway.

Dolphin browser might be a possibility... there is a LastPass plugin: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lastpass.lpdolphin&hl=en

Dolphin add-on info: http://dev.dolphin-browser.com/add-on-guide/

I don't have Android dev experience but wouldn't mind getting my feet wet to support the cause. I'm a recent convert to Keepass and have been enjoying your app.

if you want to try - you can use KP2A's plugin architecture to query credentials:
https://keepass2android.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=How%20to%20create%20a%20plug-in%3f&referringTitle=Documentation

so the app would be both a plug-in for KP2A and Dolphin!
