    Node.js Custom Environment Variable Generator for config-Based Projects

    This is a handy little utility that will generate JSON suitable for use as a config-based project's config/custom-environment-variables.json. (Note that throughout this project "cev" stands for "custom environment variables".)

    See blog post at http://www.scispike.com/blog/get-rid-of-node-js-config-grunt-work

    It really comes in handy when your configuration starts to get big and you forget to keep your config/custom-environment-variables.json file in sync with the rest of your configuration.

    Example

    $ npm install -g config-cev-generator
    # change into a config-based node.js project...
    $ cev
    

    If your project's configuration is

    {
      "foo": {
        "bar": "snafu",
        "goo": "juju"
      }
    }
    

    then the preceding command will generate JSON to stdout suitable for use as your project's config/custom-environment-variables.json:

    {
      "foo": {
        "bar": "NODE_APP_FOO_BAR",
        "goo": "NODE_APP_FOO_GOO"
      }
    }
    

    To save the output, just direct it to a file:

    $ cev > config/custom-environment-variables.json

    Prerequisites

    The generator requires that your project have a valid config-based configuration in order to work properly.

    Tips

    • The default environment variable prefix is NODE_APP. Customize with -p or --prefix.
    • The default word separator is _. Customize with -s or --separator.
    • Run cev --help for more information.
