Keeping Security Credentials Out of Source Code Repository

Moonshine is supposed to keep the file in the shared folder and symlink it to the file under current project folder just by adding one line to the config/moonshine.yml

  - config/amazon_s3.yml

For some reason it created the symlink but it did not upload the file. I had to manually do it by :

cap shared_config:upload

on my laptop. On initial setup it actually worked for database.yml. I think it is because of cap deploy:setup command. Remember to add the config file to the .gitignore file so that it does not get checked into the repo.
