    dotenv-json-complex

    Load complex enviroment variable via JSON file

    Installation

    With Nodejs installed run the installation command in a terminal:

    npm install dotenv-json-complex

    Usage

    Create a .env.json file in the root of your project:

    {
        "my_app_env": {
          "nodeEnv": "development",
          "api": {
            "prefix": "/api"
          },
          "database": {
            "username": "foo",
            "password": "bar",
            "name": "awesome_db_name",
            "host": "my_db_host"
          }
        }
    }

    After that, load your environment variables by requiring the dotenv dotenv-json-complex and executing it:

    // here you load the json to your process.env
    require("dotenv-json-complex")();
    
    const env = JSON.parse(process.env.my_app_env);
    
    // this will print your complex json environment!
    console.log(env)
    
    // like this
    {
      "nodeEnv": "development",
      "api": {
        "prefix": "/api"
      },
      "database": {
        "username": "foo",
        "password": "bar",
        "name": "awesome_db_name",
        "host": "my_db_host"
      }
    }

    Furthermore you can provide an object to change environment filename:

    require("dotenv-json-complex")({ environment: 'qa' });

    This will look for .env.qa.json file and load it in memory.
