    secret-config

    A Node.js module for managing a multi-environment encrypted config file.

    This module uses my other module, yael-autoencrypt, to read and write to an encrypted config file. You should read the README for that module first.

    This module is a convenience wrapper. It basically just takes a YAML formatted file with entries grouped by environment, and returns the correct configuration based on the current NODE_ENV.

    Installation

    npm install secret-config
    

    Example usage

    // First use
    secrets = require('secret-config')(
      password: process.env.ENCRYPTION_PASSPHRASE
      plaintext_file: 'secrets.yaml'
      encrypted_file: 'secrets.encrypted'
    )
     
    // Subsequent use in other files can use cached results
    secrets = require('secret-config')();
     
    // If you do not want to cache results, useful if loading a second file
    secrets = require('secret-config')(
      cache: false,
      password: process.env.ENCRYPTION_PASSPHRASE2
      plaintext_file: 'other-secrets.yaml'
      encrypted_file: 'other-secrets.encrypted'
    )

    Config file

    It can read YAML or JSON and returns a JavaScript object. What configuration it returns depends on process.env.NODE_ENV. Each environment gets its own top-level key. Settings common to all environments can be placed in the 'common' key. Any values in the environment keys will override or be added to the values in 'common'.

    Example file:

    common:
      session:
        secret: 'express session secret'
      auth:
        user: 'test'
        pass: 'test'
    development:
      mongo:
        db_uri: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/users'
    production:
      auth:
        user: 'admin'
        pass: 'very long secure password'
      mongo:
        db_uri: 'mongodb://user:password@my.domain.com:27017/users'
      google_analytics:
        WebPropertyID: 'UA-12345678-9'

    When run with NODE_ENV=development, secrets would equal:

    {
      session: {
        secret: 'express session secret'
      },
      auth: {
        user: 'test',
        pass: 'test'
      },
      mongo: {
        db_uri: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/users'
      }
    }

    But when run with NODE_ENV=production, secrets would equal instead:

    {
      session: {
        secret: 'express session secret'
      },
      auth: {
        user: 'admin',
        pass: 'very long secure password'
      },
      mongo: {
        db_uri: 'mongodb://user:password@my.domain.com:27017/users'
      },
      google_analytics: {
        WebPropertyID: 'UA-12345678-9'
      }
    }
