Managing LastPass with Alfred 2

I recently realized a gross inefficiency in my life: managing my LastPass vault.

You’ll no doubt know of LastPass, the excellent cross-platform password manager:

LastPass remembers your passwords so that you can focus on the more important things in life.

It’s a wonderful tool and I love it dearly. However, it’s a tale of two experiences for me. When it comes to auto-logging-in to websites (LastPass’ original, intended purpose) it works beautifully; however, when it comes to copying passwords/usernames/etc. out of the vault (for, say, the purpose of pasting them into applications that don’t support a LastPass integration, like nearly every iOS app), it’s a pain.

The pain comes from the fact that I have to:

  1. open my browser.
  2. click on the LastPass extension.
  3. enter my master password.
  4. click on the extension again.
  5. search for my site.
  6. copy my desired info.

The amount of friction is nauseating. Therefore, I set out to build something better.
