I am writing some Universal Store app and wanted to keep API keys outside of the GitHub repo since they are supposed to be kept confidential. I could not find much about that on the web (Azure supports that scenario via app.config override, but only on the server side) so I ended up putting something together using AppVeyor's secure variables. I documented that online but thought that might be something useful to have in AppVeyor docs too. I could send a doc PR if that sounds like a topic of general interest. Just let me know where in the doc that should live, what info would be most useful (standalone code snippets, pointers to NuGet/GitHub, etc.), and what should be left out (detail overload). Here is what I have so far: GitHub doc, blog.

    Hi Matthieu,

    That's a nice solution, thanks for sharing it with the community!

    I think it's OK to keep it in the blog (for now). If you tweet about it I'd like to re-tweet it to AppVeyor subscribers.

    Another good place is KB area on forums: We love keep everything there as there is quite good search over articles.

    Good idea: that twitter account of mine has been collecting dust for quite some time now... Here it is:
