Gitenc - Sensitive file encryption with Git using GPG
Sensitive data file encryption while using Git, with GPG; never accidentally submit a password config to a repo again.

Gitenc is a simple shell script that works as a placeholder for git add and will parse filenames for sensitive names from git diff and apply GPG encryption as needed (filenames matching config, connection or sqlbackup) while handing everything off to git.
