  • GitHub repo transcrypt

    transparently encrypt files within a git repository (by elasticdog)

    Project mention: How do I become "smarter" | | 2021-03-18

    Start writing all of your work down. I personally put almost every line of code I ever write into github. I have a "misc" project for random one-off things, but I always commit it to a repo. I started doing this in 2013/2014 and its been incredibly valuable to go back and refer to old work (its also fun to see how far you've come). This gets interesting when you start needing to write down information that shouldn't be public (e.g. api keys). You're into crypto, so you can probably see the fun in this. I've use a program called transcrypt to store encrypted files in my git repos. Be careful with transcrypt though, if you make a mistake you can accidentally publish secrets in plain text, and it does open you up to brute force attacks.
