Node.js Custom Environment Variable Generator for config-Based Projects
This is a handy little utility that will generate JSON suitable for use as a config-based project's config/custom-environment-variables.json. (Note that throughout this project "cev" stands for "custom environment variables".)
See blog post at http://www.scispike.com/blog/get-rid-of-node-js-config-grunt-work
It really comes in handy when your configuration starts to get big and you forget to keep your config/custom-environment-variables.json file in sync with the rest of your configuration.

Example

$ npm install -g config-cev-generator
# change into a config-based node.js project...
$ cev
If your project's configuration is
{
  "foo": {
    "bar": "snafu",
    "goo": "juju"
  }
}
then the preceding command will generate JSON to stdout suitable for use as your project's config/custom-environment-variables.json:
{
  "foo": {
    "bar": "NODE_APP_FOO_BAR",
    "goo": "NODE_APP_FOO_GOO"
  }
}

To save the output, just direct it to a file:
$ cev > config/custom-environment-variables.json

Prerequisites

The generator requires that your project have a valid config-based configuration in order to work properly.

Tips

- The default environment variable prefix is NODE_APP. Customize with -p or --prefix. - The default word separator is _. Customize with -s or --separator. - Run cev --help for more information.
