Pidgin KWallet Plugin
Score 57%

This Pidgin plugin allows you to store your passwords encrypted within KDE's wallet (by default Pidgin stored them in clear text under ~/.purple)

The plugin will move your passwords from ~/.purple/accounts.xml into the KDE wallet. It is activated via the 'Tools/KWallet/Encrypt Password' menu item. You will need to call this each time you change an account's password.

This is a port to KDE4's KWallet DBus API from the original kwallet_password.c
which can be found at:

p.s. If knew how to have the saving automated, and update when a password is changed, then I would've added this. However, my quick attempts failed.

Thanks for the plugin, but seems it stops working with KDE 5. Can you port libpurple kwallet pidgin plugin for KDE5 version of KDE Wallet?

You could use the "account-connecting" hook - it is ran every time the user connects on an account (you could save the password then, you know it's correct, they just logged it with it).

:) I implemented this as a Perl plugin a few months ago having the same project as a starting point; maybe the code will help you.

At last! I will make PKGBUILD for Arch. Can you host source tarball somewhere else too? It would be helpful in case of new version.

Thank you very much!
