Keeping sensitive config settings secret with Azure Websites and GitHub

During my foray into Azure web sites as part of the Windows Azure Developer challenge, I came up with what I think is a useful pattern for keeping your sensitive config settings secret when using Azure websites and GitHub. It allows you to:

  • Access them when debugging locally
  • Access them when deploying to the cloud
  • Stop them getting into source control on GitHub where others can see them
