chezmoi includes support for LastPass using the LastPass CLI to expose data as a template function.

Log in to LastPass using:

$ lpass login $LASTPASS_USERNAME

Check that lpass is working correctly by showing password data:

$ lpass show --json $LASTPASS_ENTRY_ID

where $LASTPASS_ENTRY_ID is a LastPass Entry Specification.

The structured data from lpass show --json id is available as the lastpass template function. The value will be an array of objects. You can use the index function and .Field syntax of the text/template language to extract the field you want. For example, to extract the password field from first the "GitHub" entry, use:

githubPassword = {{ (index (lastpass "GitHub") 0).password | quote }}

chezmoi automatically parses the note value of the LastPass entry as colon-separated key-value pairs, so, for example, you can extract a private SSH key like this:

{{ (index (lastpass "SSH") 0).note.privateKey }}

Keys in the note section written as CamelCase Words are converted to camelCaseWords.

If the note value does not contain colon-separated key-value pairs, then you can use lastpassRaw to get its raw value, for example:

{{ (index (lastpassRaw "SSH Private Key") 0).note }}
