dotenv-expand v5.1.0

Expand environment variables using dotenv



Dotenv-expand adds variable expansion on top of dotenv. If you find yourself needing to expand environment variables already existing on your machine, then dotenv-expand is your tool.

BuildStatus NPM version js-standard-style


npm install dotenv --save
npm install dotenv-expand --save


As early as possible in your application, require dotenv and dotenv-expand, and wrap dotenv-expand around dotenv.

var dotenv = require('dotenv')
var dotenvExpand = require('dotenv-expand')

var myEnv = dotenv.config()

See test/.env for examples of variable expansion in your .env file.
