🚀 Usage


By default, dotenv-linter checks all .env files in the current directory:

$ dotenv-linter
Checking .env
.env:2 DuplicatedKey: The FOO key is duplicated
.env:3 UnorderedKey: The BAR key should go before the FOO key

Checking .env.test
.env.test:1 LeadingCharacter: Invalid leading character detected

Found 3 problems

🛠 Fix

It can also fix the found warnings with the fix command:

$ dotenv-linter fix
Fixing .env
Original file was backed up to: ".env_1601378896"

.env:2 DuplicatedKey: The BAR key is duplicated
.env:3 LowercaseKey: The foo key should be in uppercase

All warnings are fixed. Total: 2

🤲 Compare

In addition, dotenv-linter can compare .env files with each other and output the difference between them:

$ dotenv-linter compare .env .env.example
Comparing .env
Comparing .env.example
.env is missing keys: BAR
.env.example is missing keys: FOO

Other use cases you can find on the documentation site (

🚦 Continuous Integration

dotenv-linter can also be used with CI services such as: GitHub Actions and Circle CI.
