Cloud Foundry CLI plugin to export application VCAP_SERVICES and VCAP_APPLICATION onto the local machine.
Applications running on Cloud Foundry rely on the VCAP_SERVICES environment variable to provide service credentials. Application specific configuration environment is provided in VCAP_APPLICATION.
When running applications locally for development and testing, it's useful to have the same VCAP_SERVICES values available in the local environment to simulate running on the host platform.
This plugin will export the remote application environment variables, available using cf env, into a format that makes it simple to expose those same values locally. This plugin will only export VCAP_SERVICES by default. To include VCAP_APPLICATION as well use the --all option.
$ go get github.com/jthomas/copyenv
$ cf install-plugin $GOPATH/bin/copyenv
$ make install-plugin
$ cf copyenv APP_NAME
The plugin output needs to be evaluated in your shell to set up the local environment variables.
$ eval `cf copyenv APP_NAME`
Using a temporary file:
$ cf copyenv APP_NAME > temp.json
$ source temp.json
You can obtain additional information with flags.
$ cf copyenv APP_NAME -all
$ cf uninstall-plugin copyenv
