    envious: environment variables made easy, fun, and finally profitable

    envious makes it absurdly easy for you to configure your environment, so you can have a central place to define credentials and whatnot.

    install

    npm install envious
    

    textbook example

    put this in your pipe

    var envious = require('envious');
     
    envious.development = 
    {
      "mongodb_hostname": "dev.local",
      "site_url": "http://127.0.0.1/",
    }
     
    envious.production = 
    {
      "mongodb_hostname": "masterdb.sterlingcooper.com",
      "site_url": "http://zombo.com/",
    }
     
    envious.default_env = "development";
     
    var env = envious.apply();
     
    console.log(env.site_url);

    and smoke it

    NODE_ENV=production node app.js
    

    options

    strict: strict environment checking

    var env = envious.apply({strict: true});
    

    When strict is on, it will throw an error if the environment does not exist. normally, it would simply fall back to the default.

    strictProperties: if the current environment is missing properties that the default environment has, throw an error.

    var env = envious.apply({strictProperties: true});
    

    By default, properties not defined in the current environment will be copied from the default environment.

    tests

    you have to run the tests a certain way.

    • normal.js: tests normal function. NODE_ENV=production node normal.js
    • default.js: tests the default environment feature. node default.js
    • strict.js: tests strict mode. NODE_ENV=bogus node strict.js
