My native language is C++, but I have left my first love and now use python whenever I have the slightest excuse. Actually, I use python even if I don't have an excuse.

comment Adding new functionality to all of shelve.Shelf's subclasses in Python
@kuzzooroo, well, you could override __getattr__ to forward everything to _shelf. I'd figure you probably only need a couple of the methods for what's actually useful in a shelf, and so I'd just implement those directly.

@RibaldEddie, the OP title references, "or other secrets", and so I thought it useful to provide a more generic solution.

@RibaldEddie, no they don't need to be stored in source control. You can store them instead on a dedicated password server.

@RibaldEddie, the question is about accidentally pushing sensitive information to a public repository. If you are concerned that your own developers might be malicious, that's a whole different question.

Actually, the best approach depends on what language you are using. What are you using?
