Re: Feature Request - Encrypted Page Plugin


Hi Brian,

some time ago I wrote a plugin for ZIM which can encrypt a selection inside a zim page using gpg, see https://github.com/jaap-karssenberg/zim-wiki/wiki/Crypt-Selection-Plugin

It works only on the selected text block, but not on the whole page -- but maybe that's sufficient?

Kind regards,

I use Zim to store a variety of notes, and while most of the pages don't
need any security, sometimes I wish to make a personal note of
information that needs some privacy.  It would be nice if there was a
plugin such that an individual page could be marked to be encrypted.
During operation, GPG would be used to decrypt the page for viewing,
then encrypt when saving, using the default key or an option to specify
which key to use.  The header of the page source would be left intact,
perhaps with a field that identifies the page as encrypted, while the
body of the page source would be encrypted in a text-based form.  I'm
aware I could use something like encfs to encrypt the entire folder, or
manually encrypt the pages, but would be nice for some plugin to do this
on a page-by-page basis.
