withenv: runs commands with extra environment settings
It's just like envdir, but for go, and it reads files.
When I looked around, I couldn't find a tool for a small need: to run an application quickly with appropriate environment variables set, when no shell is available.
This particular use case helps running handlers in sensu-go, while secrets are not exposed to the API / web UI. Information about a file on a system is less threatening than seeing the actual secret set by an environment variable, which is not even redacted by the user interface.
usage: withenv PATH COMMAND [ARGS...] Set environment variables defined in file PATH, and run COMMAND. -v print program version -h this help Arguments: PATH path to a file containing variable declarations in a KEY=VAL format. Spaces around KEY and VAL are NOT stripped. VAL has variable expansion. COMMAND next executable in line, which will be run with the newly set environment variables. ARGS... any command line items are taken to COMMAND after variable expansion.
