Up to now I’ve only used
dotenv in a
Rails context. It can just as easily be used in a plain old Ruby project.
Install the non-Rails version of the gem.
$ gem install dotenv
Then add the following lines wherever you want
dotenv included and loaded.
In my case, I want it pulled in as part of my RSpec setup in
require 'dotenv' Dotenv.load
Your environment variables declared in
.env are now accessible via fetches
