It is no secret that I am a fan of the Qt project. I like how it promisses, and can deliver the capability to develop a cross platform UI.
That being said, if there is one thing that can set one application apart from the others, is attention to detail. I include in that looking and behaving as any other native (native only, that is) application.
I was starting to get annoyed at how KeePassX looks under OS X.
I have found a project on github that promised a OS X native client for kdb files called MacPass. They are using a github feature I had no idea existed: they have pre-built binaries available for download.
Here's how it looks:
That looks much nicer! At least it blends in nicely with the other OS X applications.
Here's what I liked about it:
- Supports full screen mode
- Has a nice looking icon
- Searching is easy (using the keyboard only)
- Double clicking on the username copies it to the clipboard
- Conversely, double clicking on the password copies it to the clipboard
I know these as tiny differences, but I use this application so much that they add up after some time.
Also, I'm a sucker for eye candy.
