All the app does is scrape the public Gists feed every few seconds and looks for the word "secret" or "password". It has a lot of false positives but I've found a few legit usernames/passwords checked in. It's a fun thing to browse at work when I have downtime.
If you don't know what a Gist is, you can read more about them here , they're essentially mini-git repos to quickly share code.
I'd love any feedback.
Would something like https://github.com/Yelp/detect-secrets be interesting to include?
Either as a filtering step to weed out false positives or to find even more secrets (i.e. that aren't near "password" or "secret")
Let me take a look at that repo...
