I'm not completely sure I understand what you want to do but I think you
can achieve something like this using PASSWORD_STORE_GIT and
Assuming you have the following structure in your repository:
│ └── foo.gpg
$ pass home/foo
$ pass work/foo
Then you can do set the environment variables like this:
$ export PASSWORD_STORE_GIT=~/.password-store
$ export PASSWORD_STORE_DIR=~/.password-store/home
$ pass foo
$ export PASSWORD_STORE_DIR=~/.password-store/work
$ pass foo
I hope it helps!
