jak

jak is a tool for encrypting files. jak works extra well if used in a git repository.

Warning

jak is not ready yet. You are welcome to try jak, but we highly recommend against using it on any actual secrets yet!

Install

pip install jak

Quickstart

cd ~/folderThatMayOrMayNotBeARepo
jak start

edit jakfile # add which files you want to have be encrypted.

jak encrypt all

# All files listen in the jakfile should now be encrypted.

We also made this video that might be helpful for running through a basic setup in a git repository.
