[bitbucket] Amazon S3 secret key


I'm about to use bitbucket, with a team of 6 users, so our project will be public. We are going to use Amazon S3 services, to store images from our database. I would like to now how to process correctly, to hide the AWS credentials (access key, secret key). So that it will never be seen on our public project.

Do we have to rewrite the file everytime we push ? Or is there an existing solution ?

I would recommend not versioning the file that stores those credentials, using .gitignore. If you'd like to have a sterile copy of the file versioned for documentation, you might consider a separate .default file.

For example, if your S3 credentials are in "config.ini", then remove that file from the repository, ignore the copy in your working copy, and create and commit a "config.default.ini" without the credentials.
