πŸ₯’ Cucumber

This is a very simple and small project that we created to save some time when working on web servers hosted on Heroku.

We are big fans of the Heroku Button. It allows us to create a project that's deployable by anyone, with detailed instructions on how to set up all of the environment variables, thanks to the app.json file.

Locally, we use foreman to load the local environment variables from the .env file, and since projects can sometimes end up with lots of env variables.

We created this tiny app to automatically generate the .env file while making sure the file won't exceed the 80 char ruler mark.

If your app.json file has set default values, Cucumber will automatically populate the variables. Anything else will require your action to fill in the data.

How to Install

] sudo npm install -g @0x4447/cucumber

How to Use

] cucumber

What to Expect

This is an example app.json file that you might have in your project.
