       These steps cover the basic process of using git-secret:

       1.  Before  starting,  make  sure you have created gpg RSA key-pair: public and secret key
           identified by your email address.

       2.  Initialize git-secret repository by  running  git  secret  init  command.  .gitsecret/
           folder   will  be  created,  note  that  .gitsecret/  folder  should  not  be  ignored

       3.  Add first user to the system by running git secret tell

       4.  Now it´s time to add files you wish to encrypt inside the  git-secret  repository.  It
           can  be  done  by running git secret add <filenames...> command. Make sure these files
           are ignored, otherwise git-secret won´t allow you to add them, as these files will  be
           stored unencrypted.

       5.  When  done,  run  git  secret  hide  all files, which you have added by git secret add
           command will be encrypted with added public-keys by the git secret tell  command.  Now
           it  is  safe  to  commit  your  changes.  But. It´s recommended to add git secret hide
           command to your pre-commit hook, so you won´t miss any changes.

       6.  Now decrypt files with git secret reveal command. It will ask you for  your  password.
           And you´re done!

   I want to add someone to the repository
       1.  Get his gpg public-key. You won´t need their secret key.

       2.  Import this key inside your gpg by running gpg --import KEY_NAME

       3.  Now add this person to the git-secret by running git secret tell

       4.  Reencypt the files, now they will be able to decrypt them with their secret key.

       Note, that it is possible to add yourself to the system without decrypting existing files.
       It will be possible to decrypt them after reencrypting them with the new keyring.  So,  if
       you  don´t  want  unexpected  keys added, make sure to configure some server-side security
       policy with the pre-receive hook.


       You can configure several things to suit your workflow better. To  do  so,  just  set  the
       required  variable  to the value you need. This can be done in your shell environment file
       or with the each git-secret command.

       These settings are available to be changed:

       ·   $SECRETS_GPG_COMMAND - sets the gpg alternatives, defaults to gpg. It can  be  changed
           to gpg, gpg2, pgp, /usr/local/gpg or any other value. After doing so rerun tests to be
           sure, that it won´t break anything. Tested to be working with: gpg, gpg2.

       ·   $SECRETS_EXTENSION - sets the secret files extension, defaults to .secret. It  can  be
           changed to any valid file extension.
