Hey, This Website Looks Like a GitBook 📖
Yes, this website is intentionally created like a book. We wanted to make sure that you have a great experience reading our documentation, and we believe that following the documentation cover-to-cover as if it were a book is the best way to learn about VMware Secrets Manager (VSecM) for Cloud-Native Apps.
We use a heavily customized version of the Jekyll GitBook Theme to achieve this. You can check the source code for this website on GitHub to see how that is done.
Terminology: A Tale of Two Secrets
There are two kinds of “secret”s mentioned throughout this documentation:
- Secrets that are stored in VSecM Safe: When discussing these, they will
be used like a regular word “secret” or, emphasized “secret”; however,
you will never see them in
- The other kind of secret is Kubernetes
Secretobjects. Those types will be explicitly mentioned as “Kubernetes
Secrets” in the documentation.
We hope this will clarify any confusion going forward.
