Ansible vault diff in Git
Normally, when you diff an Ansible vault, all you see is gibberish.
With Git, there’s an easy way to associate a textconv with files, so you can run the vaults through ansible-vault view prior to diffing.
Setup your textconv for vault files in either ~/.gitconfig (globally) or ./.git/config (per-project).
vi ~/.gitconfig [diff "ansible-vault"] textconv = ansible-vault view cachetextconv = true
Then, either in ~/.config/git/attributes (globally) or in ./.gitattributes (per-project), configure your vault files to use the ansible-vault type.
# or *.vault.yml, or *-vault.yml, or whatever convention you use for vaults vault.yml diff=ansible-vault
Now, git diff has a lot less gibberish.
