Projectpad: The tool that every developer should have

Projectpad allows managing secret credentials and server information that you need to handle as a software developer or sysadmin.

Developers often work on different projects at the same time, some of these projects are the same in a different state, either for testing or staging.

Every project has its secrets, password, setup, and server information which become harder to maintain and save especially in plain text. Some developers choose to save and record these pieces of information in a note app, or even a personal information manager.

However, they can do that well with Projectpad, which is designed particularly for this purpose.

What is Projectpad?

Projectpad assists developers to store, record, organize all projects information in one place, where they can classify the project to its stage.

It permits attaching notes, adding points of interest like certain folders, directories, or files, adding server links, or virtual machine information.

The developers can decide the project type:

  1. Dev: the development environment
  2. Stg: Staging the last testing environment
  3. Uat: User Acceptance Testing, an environment used by the customer, which is not Prod;
  4. Prod: the production environment.

These different environments can be used later to filter the records.
