Rails Env Config
This gem provides support for importing local environment variables. With the advent of platform hosting services, the convention is now to store configuration in system environment variables which applications access using ENV.
This is great when you have a platform which sets these for you automatically but not so good in development.
This gem allows you to define environment variables in a
config/environment.yml file and these will then be loaded into ENV each time your application starts.
Enabling this is easy, just add it to your Gemfile and run
gem 'rails_env_config', '~> 1.0'
Once installed, you can create a yaml file containing your local environment variables.
# Some Viaduct keys go here VIADUCT_OAUTH_KEY: abc123abc123abc123 VIAUDCT_OAUTH_SECRET: sadfjhu4hdjuhsdufghduih # Rails session secrets SECRET_KEY_BASE: 4fba605ff1f4c8d35d49feb5ebe0cea28dd27f40e104e46e85c1c408a28c730d83c31d77e4691c3dc4e841480ab72c9b143415deb86c6fac164b1a72eb9e1205
Be sure that you don't commit this file into your repository. It should only be used for setting configuration for development use.
