DESCRIPTION

The eyaml command is a command line interface for hiera-eyaml. It is used to create keys, encrypt and decrypt data, and act as a wrapper around a text editor.

EXAMPLES

encrypting data

$ eyaml encrypt --string 'foo bar'
Encrypts the command line argument to "--string", and outputs the encrypted data on two formats, line and block. This can be included in an .eyaml file. The "eyaml" command expects keys to be present in the "./keys/" directory by default.

using the editor wrapper

$ eyaml edit hieradata/common.eyaml
Decrypts the file into a temporary file, and opens the file in a text editor. Values to be encrypted are wrapped in markup. When the file is saved, any changed values are encrypted.

BUGS

The file referenced in "eyaml edit" must exist.
An error in the markup may result in "eyaml edit" not being able to open the file.
