What would be a good application that I could use on my Mac to open and edit KeePass 2 .KDBX files?

I tried running KeePass 2 with mono, but that is just painful.

What would you recommend?

EDIT: Preferably free application

  • There's a Macintosh package listed on the KeePass download page. Does that not work? What's wrong with it? – Michael Kohne Mar 17 '14 at 18:44

    @MichaelKohne Assuming you're talking about this package, it requires Mono, which OP stated he'd rather avoid. – DanteTheEgregore Mar 17 '14 at 20:29

There is MacPass on github: https://github.com/mstarke/MacPass

It's a native OS X app and it opens my KDBX 2 file just fine, worth a try.

    More details would be good in general but given the question I'd say this is enough although minimal. – Nick Wilde Mar 20 '14 at 1:57

I tried KeePassX 2.0 Alpha 6 released and it seems to be stable enough to use. Still be careful not to loose any important data.

  • Supports .kdb format
  • Still in development.
  • Lots of potential!

P.S. Thanks to @DanteTheEgregore for sharing about KeePassX 2.0

KeePassX 2.0 is currently in alpha and features .kdbx support. It appears the last version (alpha 5) was released December 5th, 2013. Presumably that's why KeePassX 1.0 hasn't seen updates in quite a while. – DanteTheEgregore Mar 19 at 1:31

Have you considered KeePassX?

KeePassX is a port of KeePass available on both Linux and OS X, free of charge. KeePassX is licensed under the GNU General Public License

KeePassX

Features:

  • native OS X and Linux ports
  • Supports .kdb format
  • for general KeePass/KeePassX features see KeePassX Features

Potential Drawbacks:

  • KeePassX supports only .kdb and not the newer .kdbx format, however, as per their faq

    you can create an export in KeePass 1.x database format (.kdb) from KeePass 2.x, which KeePassX can read (and use as the native password database).

    "KeePassX supports only .kdb" is exactly why I am looking for something else. Also, the application has not been updated since 2010-03-07... – Radi Mar 18 '14 at 15:16

  • I did not know there is KeePassX 2. I will check it out and let you know if it works well enough. Thank you for sharing – Radi Mar 19 '14 at 17:58
