git-secret-init - Man Page

initializes git-secret repository.


git secret init


git-secret-init should be run inside a git repo to set up the .gitsecret directory and initialize the repo for git-secret. Until repository is initialized with git secret init, all other git-secret commands are unavailable.

If a .gitsecret directory already exists, git-secret-init exits without making any changes. Otherwise, a .gitsecret directory is created with appropriate sub-directories, and patterns to ignore git-secret´s random_seed_file and not ignore .secret files are added to .gitignore.

(See git-secret(7) for information about renaming the .gitsecret folder with the SECRETS_DIR environment variable, and changing the extension git-secret uses for secret files with the SECRETS_EXTENSION environment variable.
