git-secret-add - starts to track added files.

SYNOPSIS

git secret add [-i] <pathspec>...

DESCRIPTION

If there’s no users in the git-secret’s keyring, when adding a file, an exception will be raised.

It is not recommened to add filenames directly into the .gitsecret/paths/mapping.cfg, use the command.

OPTIONS

-i  - auto adds given files to the `.gitignore` if they are unignored at the moment.
-h  - shows this help.
