dotenv.net is a zero-dependency module that loads environment variables from a .env file into
First install the library as a dependency in your application from nuget
dotnet add package dotenv.net
or for paket
paket add dotenv.net
Create a file with no filename and an extension of
.env. Add the file to the root of your project. Set the file
Copy To Output Directory to
.env file would look like this:
DB_HOST=localhost DB_USER=root DB_PASS=s1mpl3
Startup.cs file or as early as possible in your code add the following:
using DotEnv; ... DotEnv.Config();
the values saved in your
.env file would be avaibale in your application and can be accessed via
Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("DB_HOST"); // would output 'localhost'
You can specify if you want the library to error out if any issue arises or fail silently.
DotEnv.Config(false); //fails silently
You can specify a custom path if your file containing environment variables is named or located differently.
You may specify the encoding of your file containing environment variables using this option.
DotEnv.Config(true, ".env", Encoding.Unicode);
