This webapp is a browser and desktop password manager compatible with KeePass databases. It doesn’t require any server or additional resources. The app can run either in browser, or as a desktop app.
The app is quite stable now. Basic stuff, as well as more advanced operations, should be rather reliable.
Everything you need to host this app on your server is any static file server. The app is a single HTML file + a service worker (optionally; for offline access). You can download the latest distribution files from gh-pages branch.
If you are using Docker:
- put your dh.pem, cert.pem, key.pem to /etc/nginx/external/
- run this script:
docker run --name keeweb -d -p 443:443 -p 80:80 -v $EXT_DIR:/etc/nginx/external/ antelle/keeweb
