Habitat

Rails 3 plugin that automatically loads heroku config variables into your development environment

Disclaimer

I've only tested habitat within the confines of my own (narrow) use case.

So here are some things I haven't tried but think will break:

  • Using habitat on a machine without the heroku gem setup with your credentials

  • Using habitat when not the owner of the heroku app

Usage

In your Gemfile:

group :development do
  gem 'habitat'
end

To override values from heroku config create a habitat.yml file in config

Sample config/habitat.yml:

TWITTER_KEY: differentkeythanproduction

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
