Using VSCode to edit SOPS yaml

Long time no post – just a quick one on how to use VSCODE with editing YAML


If you’re reading this, you already know what SOPS is and is frustrated in editing YAML via traditional VIM or command line editor. This is extremely frustrating if you’ll be adding alot of YAML values.


In your command line, expose the following environment variables

export $EDITOR="code --wait"

And proceed with your SOPS cli.

Enjoy and hope that helps!
