Grav .env Plugin

Simple Grav plugin that provides a simple way to load environment variables from .gravenv and override existing Grav configuration.

Uses adbario/php-dot-notation and vlucas/phpdotenv.


Installing the plugin can be done in one of two ways. Our GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's Terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install dotenv

This will install the plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/dotenv.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to dotenv.

You should now have all the plugin files under:



In order to use the plugin, create the file .gravenv in the root of your project directory. Here's an example of overriding the existing system configuration:

Current contents of system.yamlfile:

  enabled: true
  cache: tue
  enabled: false

Contents of the .gravenv file:
