Here's how to start using John Papa's VSCode extension Cloak to hide
.env secrets, especially helpful when you're livestreaming!
- Search 'Cloak' in VSCode extensions and install it.
- Open up a .env file with your secrets in it. It should look something like this:
- Open up your Command Palette and hit 'Cloak: Hide Secrets'
Note: If you copy/paste, your secret will be visible in the file you pasted it in.
PS- many thanks to @nickytonline who pointed out the usefulness of this extension!
