Keepass in a console

I use the linux console a lot & there are a lot of times I quickly need a password. I also use KeePassX to store all my passwords. I have a sync script setup to securely sync with a private server. To date I have not been able to quickly grab a password from the command line.

I would ideally like something that did the following:
(set KEEPASSKEYFILE=/somepath/somefile & KEEPASSFILE=/somepath/someotherfile)
$ keepass -l gmail (l for list)
Password: ***********

gmail.com – user1
gmail.com – user2

$ keepass -p gmail.com user1 (p for password)
SecretPassword4User1

I haven’t found this yet, maybe I will write it… we will see
But until then I did see this:
