I'm sorry KeePassXC can not be compiled on our systems. (looking at the build instructions, I don't actually see Ruby, but I also don't know much about porting)


First part of Build Dependencies from https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/blob/develop/INSTALL.md

Code: [Select]
The following tools must exist within your PATH:

    make
    cmake (>= 3.3.0)
    g++ (>= 4.7) or clang++ (>= 6.0)
    asciidoctor (>= 2.0)

The asciidoctor is a Ruby script

I'm not seeing a Java password manager running on iOS. Running Java means having a supported run-time, so both of my principle platforms are a problem.

I wish OpenJDK had a little more development on our platform. The Java approach is better than Qt, as you say, but we have a pretty up-to-date Qt, but not so much with Java.
I am a little disappointed, seems you never tried. The programs summed up in my previous answer are tested on the Java we have, that's version 6 and that's why they had a page on my home page. As far as I know iOS does have also a version with a low version number, certainly it will run there too. I have also tested UPM on my Windows machine and my Raspberry Pi 400 with both Java 11 and it runs there fine too, no problems. So there seems to be a wide spread of Java versions in which the programs run without a problem.

Another option is Firefox. Our Firefox45 does save passwords, and can be used as a password manager for Dooble or any other new browser that lacks a password manager. It's a very heavy client for just remembering passwords. Synchronizing used to be a problem, and I haven't tried for a while.
That's not a wise decision because the FF version seems not proof for malware. Never have your passwords inside a program which can go  online.

I don't know of any Java Runtime for iOS.

On my company server, I run Jetty (a Java web application server). If I knew of one, I could run a server side password manager written in Java (limited to the OS/2 OpenJDK port)

I suppose that would not be very secure, either.

There are some very nice search engines available, I use DuckDuckGo. Just type in "iOS Java" and you have some reading to  do.

https://app.keeweb.info/ seems to run fine in Dooble and opened my keepassx database fine.

I'm not interested in jail-breaking any device. There isn't a Java solution on iOS. Any developer can use XCode tools to make a Java app run native on iOS, but the effort is not free and the result is not portable to Java JVM.

Dave's suggestion of https://app.keeweb.info/ is working here. I can use it to view my Firefox passwords in Dooble. It's not Firefox45 compatible, but that was never a requirement, just a "nice to have".
