The Function Call / Ep 22 - Let’s Talk About the Environment (Variables)

Listen on

Episode notes

In this episode, Grant and Austin talk all about environment variables. We cover the difference between private and public variables, how to keep them secure, keeping them in sync across teams, and where to store your precious precious variables. They may be keys, secrets, or just configuration strings, but hopefully this chat sheds some light on the subject for you.

Reference `dotnev` from Jest config:
// jest.config.js
module.exports = {
 setupFiles: ['dotenv/config'],
};

Reference `dotenv` from NPM script:
"jest": "node -r dotenv/config ./node_modules/.bin/jest",
"knex": "node -r dotenv/config ./node_modules/knex/bin/cli.js",
