env-app-yaml

Usage

require('env-app-yaml').config();

Create a app.yml file in the root dirctory of your project, and add environment-specific variables as valid YAML.

runtime: nodejs env: flex env_variables: BASE_URL: 'https://localhost:8000' API_URL: 'https://localhost:8000/api'

That's it.

process.env now has the keys and values you defined in your app.yml file.

Preload

If you are using iojs-v1.6.0 or later, you can use the --require (-r) command line option to preload env-app-yaml. By doing this, you do not need to require and load env-app-yaml in your application code.

$ node -r env-app-yaml/config your_script.js

The configuration options below are supported as command line arguments in the format envappyaml_config_<option>=value

$ node -r env-app-yaml/config your_script.js envappyaml_config_=/custom/path/to/your/env/vars
$ node -r env-app-yaml/config server.js envappyaml_config_path=./app.dev.yaml

Options

Path

Default: app.yml

You can specify a custom path if your file containing environmnet variables is named or located differently.

require('env-app-yaml').config({ path: '/custom/path/to/your/yaml/env/vars' });

Encoding

Default: utf8

You may specify the encoding of your file containing environment variables using this option.

require('env-app-yaml').config({ encoding: 'base64' });

FAQ

Should I commit my .yaml file?

No. We strongly recommend against committing your .yaml file to version control. It should only include environment-specific values such as database passwords or API keys. Your production database should have a different password than your development database.
