eyaml version

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.


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.
