KeeWeb: KeePass compatible password manager

KeeWeb

KeeWeb is a beautifully designed multi-platform app that works with KeePass database files. KeeWeb is written in electron and comes as a standalone desktop app or online/offline web apps. For this article we will concentrate on the desktop app. We have our reservations about cloud based password managers.

On Linux KeeWeb is an alternative to KeePassX, which is Qt based. However, KeeWeb is much more polished in look and feel. The navigation remains reasonably similar. It also remembers the last file opened.
