Build Status Coverage

node-envie

Tiny module to read and document environment configuration

Envie parses and validates configuration read from the environment via process.env. Uses Joi for validation.

Installation

npm install --save envie

Usage

const Envie = require('envie')
const Joi = require('joi')
 
const envie = Envie({
  PORT: Joi
    .number()
    .min(0)
    .default(0)
    .description('Port on which the HTTP server will listen'),
 
  DATABASE_URL: Joi
    .string()
    .uri(({ scheme: ['postgres', 'mysql', 'sqlite'] }))
    .description('Connection string of the main database'),
 
  LOG_LEVEL: Joi
    .string()
    .only('fatal', 'error', 'warn', 'info', 'debug', 'trace')
    .default('info')
    .description('Level of verbosity for the logs')
})
 
 
// When you need to access your configuration
server.listen(envie.get('PORT'))
DatabaseService.use(envie.get('DATABASE_URL'))

Alternative usage

.values() validates your environment according to the schema

const Envie = require('envie')
const Joi = require('joi')
 
const { PORT } = Envie({
  PORT: Joi
    .number()
    .min(0)
    .default(0)
    .description('Port on which the HTTP server will listen'),
}).values()
 
server.listen(PORT)

Keep in mind that this "freezes" the returned values where as envie.get(key) gets the current value every time. This may cause some issues when mutating process.env for testing purposes.

Notes

Undescribed keys can be requested as well but will not be validated.

You can also display a nicely formatted help output with colours

envie.displayHelp()
  PORT (number)
    Port on which the HTTP server will listen

  LOG_LEVEL (string, default: debug)
    Level of verbosity for the logs

  DATABASE_URL (string <uri:postgres|mysql|sqlite>)
    Connection string of the main database

The displayed message also accounts for current values. For example with PORT=8080 and LOG_LEVEL="hello world!"

  PORT (number)
    Port on which the HTTP server will listen
    overwritten: 8080

  LOG_LEVEL (string, default: debug)
    Level of verbosity for the logs
    overwritten: invalid! "LOG_LEVEL" must be one of [fatal, error, warn, info, debug, trace]

  DATABASE_URL (string <uri:postgres|mysql|sqlite>)
    Connection string of the main database

If you'd rather have the help message as a simple string, you can use:

const help = envier.helpString()

Reference

[new] Envie(description[, values=process.env], options={ noDefaults: false })

Creates a new envie instance which parses the keys of the object values using the description. description must be an object whose keys contain a Joi validator. By default, process.env is parsed. The new keyword is optional.

You can specifiy noDefaults to true to get undefined instead of default value for non set key. This is specially useful if you want to use default values on local environment but want to ensure all required keys have a defined values when application is deployed.

envie.get(key)

Reads the parsed value for key if present and valid. Throws if the value is not valid.

envie.has(key)

Returns true if the key is properly configured.

envie.validate()

Throws if any validator failed.

envie.values()

Validates env and returns values as an object.

envie.displayHelp([stream=process.stderr])

Outputs to the given stream a human readable description of the expected configuration

Test

You can run the tests with npm test. You will need to know mocha
