ansible vault quick encryption

it was convenient for me to use zsh function for the string encryption:

add this to .zshrc

vault() {
	echo -n $1 | ansible-vault encrypt_string --vault-id=myvault
}

and use like this

vault my-password

output should be similar to this

Reading plaintext input from stdin. (ctrl-d to end input)
