keeping private data out of source control and applying DRY principles for resource information since 2009

YamJam is a multi-project, shared, yaml based configuration system. It is also a mechanism to keep secret/private data from leaking out to source control systems (i.e. git, bitbucket, svn, et al) by factoring out sensitive data from your commits.

  • Factor out sensitive data from your Django file
  • Makes install by source control easy by allowing different configs on your dev, staging and production machines
  • Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY) Resource configuration

Tested on Python 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4

Build Status

What Next?

We work so well with Django, you'd think we should spell our name YamDjam
