What does this do vs just using SOPS?

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 week ago

It looks to me like a way to declaratively install your ssh keys which from what I'm reading sops doesn't appear to do

Am I wrong in taking the conclusion SOPS stores that stuff encrypted at rest, and the only way to use them is either through the SOPS cli, or through whatever tool that wants the secrets implementing their library?

Sops-nix decrypts secrets at runtime and allows you to create symlinks to the secret files (/run/secret.d...) so this could be used for ssh keys AFAIK.

Ah right didn't realise there was a nix version of it, will have a look

Looks cool, but why use yaml? I never understand why people choose to use yaml as their configuration format
