We open a thread here for discuss with you about how we can integrate smoothly 1password in desktop applications.
Before the last release, we had some apps like sudolikeaboss, hyperterm-1password ... were are using 1Password via websocket and that can't work now.
At Station, we are building a revamped browser as smart workstation who embed our user's webviews. We are currently working on removing the authentication's pain process with a better experience using password managers.
We see 3 ways to work 1Password:
The first way, with the native messaging API, is not available for everyone, only for apps who are whitelisted via code signing in the distributed client. What are you thoughts about opening submitted apps for approval à la App Store. Some apps have like Brave and Vivaldi have asked you to allow them and you do it. What are the prerequisites ?
The internal API used in the web client is not documented. Do you have a plan for open it ?
The last method, through the command line client, is the only one to work in our case. We execute the binary in a subprocess and we retrieve values from it. From the user perspective, we are the ones who manage the informations between 1Password and our fields to fill in.
What do you think about the subject? What are your plan for the subject?
Your friends at Station
