πŸ₯’ Cucumber

This is a very simple and small project that we created to save some time when working on web servers hosted on Heroku.

We are big fans of the Heroku Button. It allows us to create a project that's deployable by anyone, with detailed instructions on how to set up all of the environment variables, thanks to the app.json file.

Locally, we use foreman to load the local environment variables from the .env file, and since projects can sometimes end up with lots of env variables.

We created this tiny app to automatically generate the .env file while making sure the file won't excede the 80 char ruler mark.

If your app.json file has set default values, Cucumber will automatically populate the vriables. Anything else will require your action to fill in the data.

How to Install

sudo npm install -g @0x4447/cucumber

Usage

This is an example app.json file that you might have in your project.

{
    "name": "env-auto",
    "description": "convert app.json in to .env",
    "repository": "https://github.com",
    "keywords": ["node", "npm"],
    "success_url": "/",
    "env": {
        "NODE_ENV": {
            "description": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque rhoncus sagittis urna pharetra varius. Maecenas mollis ac felis vitae blandit. Integer eu risus vehicula, pellentesque leo vel, imperdiet diam. Quisque ligula libero, aliquam ut lectus a, eleifend congue justo. Donec porttitor ultricies sem nec euismod. Fusce venenatis iaculis dapibus. Duis fringilla purus non erat lacinia tempus."
        },
        "NPM_CONFIG_PRODUCTION": {
            "description": "In volutpat ex ac metus efficitur tincidunt. Fusce tempus tempus neque, id pharetra tortor vehicula ut. Donec gravida dolor ut purus dictum, sed egestas lectus bibendum. Vestibulum et augue ac arcu dapibus tincidunt. Curabitur a neque pharetra, egestas enim id, auctor mi. Suspendisse blandit facilisis arcu in tempus. Integer ut metus non est aliquam scelerisque. Nunc dolor odio, elementum eu rhoncus nec, tincidunt ac velit. Suspendisse aliquam vestibulum diam non consequat. Phasellus aliquet neque in tellus iaculis iaculis. Pellentesque vitae massa lacus. In id erat et est vestibulum mollis. Vivamus scelerisque placerat urna nec ultrices. Nunc ac dictum tellus.",
            "value": "true"
        },
        "API_KEY": {
            "description": "Quisque justo odio, pretium a ante ac, mattis pharetra lectus. Cras erat velit, tincidunt sit amet est aliquet, pellentesque commodo massa. Duis ultrices purus dui, nec consectetur odio pellentesque sed. Etiam ipsum ex, euismod accumsan velit vitae, varius commodo arcu. Aliquam malesuada commodo lorem in tempor. Nam ut dui purus. Phasellus ornare maximus magna ac sollicitudin. Sed nec felis nibh. Nullam maximus pharetra dui, quis sodales est pretium nec.",
            "generator": "secret"
        }
    }
}

If you were to run env-auto, this is the output that you would see:

# Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque rhoncus
# sagittis urna pharetra varius. Maecenas mollis ac felis vitae blandit.
# Integer eu risus vehicula, pellentesque leo vel, imperdiet diam. Quisque
# ligula libero, aliquam ut lectus a, eleifend congue justo. Donec porttitor
# ultricies sem nec euismod. Fusce venenatis iaculis dapibus. Duis fringilla
# purus non erat lacinia tempus.
NODE_ENV=

# In volutpat ex ac metus efficitur tincidunt. Fusce tempus tempus neque, id
# pharetra tortor vehicula ut. Donec gravida dolor ut purus dictum, sed egestas

As you can see, the description will be nicely formatted, the varaiables with thefault values will be filled automatcially, and the rest is up to you.
