dotenv

A WordPress plugin to set WordPress options from a .env file.

Any WPENV_ prefixed variables in the .env will be used to override the WordPress options. For example, if you'd like to set a specific environment to "Discourage search engines from indexing this site", you can add WPENV_BLOG_PUBLIC=0 to your .env file.

Usage

  • Install the plugin.
  • Add a .env file either in the root of your site or one level above.
  • Add any WordPress options keys to filter with the prefix WPENV_

Details

  • Any option in the wp_options table or retrieved by get_option() can be set this way.

  • You can define keys either as WPENV_BLOGDESCRIPTION or as WPENV_blogdescription, both will work.

  • If you'd like to define the location of your .env file, rather than the plugin looking for it, you can filter dotenv_location to be a directory path.

  • You can also change the WPENV_ prefix by filtering dotev_key_prefix to be a different prefix.
