Credentials for production

env.SAMPLE and .env

  1. copy the env.SAMPLE into your .env like this $cp env.SAMPLE .env
  2. after the creation of the .env file fill in your credentials and comment out all the parts you are currently not using
  3. in order to get the production credentials for your .env file you could for example run in the terminal (make sure to be in the project directory: $ heroku config -> This should then show you the credentials that is associated with our current production database configs on heroku
  4. now make sure to not check this file into git by putting .env to the file .gitignore
  5. Some gems require to load the credentials first before they can execute (e.g. fog/aws), means we need to make sure the .env file is loaded before those gems are running, e.g. by using a gem like dotenv
