Some CLI tools require sensitive credentials. Obviously we don’t want to store these in the repository. Sensitive credentials are stored in the excluded-from-version-control credentials.org. The folowing is an example of the structure of the credentials.org configuration file:

#+TITLE: Credentials

Authentication credentials for CLI tools

** Github

   :header-args: :tangle ~/credentials/.github :mkdirp yes

   Github Credentials for the =gist.el= Emacs module.

   #+BEGIN_SRC conf
       user = <github.username>
       oauth-token = <github.oauth-token>
