best practice for shell scripting

I'm using rclone ( to sync some files to webdav, and
I would like to use pass to enter my password for the server. Rclone
does not seem to have a way to specify calling an external program, but
I can pass the password on the command line. I'm thus trying to write a
shell script that would call pass and then give the password to rclone.
What is the best practice to do it with a shell script that would work
with passwords with weird characters?
