Re: [dev] [dmenu] [PATCH] Added option to prompt for passwords

Hey everyone, hey hiro,

I did not yet look at the patch, but it would be a nice
(and imo reasonably small) addition to allow for password entry via dmenu.
If the asterisk-approach is too bloated for the maintainer's taste, I'm unsure
about this myself, I believe `dmenu -p "Enter Password" -g` where -g is a flag
that makes dmenu not print *anything* entered by the user would be
a neat, simple and possibly reusable solution.

If this would be merged upstream, I would like to make use of it in
snotes [0] to support encrypted notes via gnupg - a feature multiple people
asked for over the last years.
