An Environment Variable to Yaml Converter

Project description

E2Yaml

An environment variable to yaml converter.

Due to security reasons at my job, we cannot upload contents of Yaml files that have sensitive data. Variables are injected into a virtual environment as environment variables via a Jenkins job. However, when testing locally, sometimes we need those variables. E2Yaml addresses that problem.

SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_DATABASE: TESTDB
SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_ENCRYPTION: disabled
SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_ENCRYPTION-KEY: FakePassWord!
SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_PASSWORD: !54353Ffesf34
SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_REPLICASET: FAKE-DB-531

Converts to:

spring:
  data:
    mongodb:
      database: TESTDB
      encryption: disabled
      encryption-key: "FakePassWord!"
      password: "!54353Ffesf34"
      replicaSet: FAKE-DB-531

And we can see this from the command line by runnning driver.py:

╰─$ python3 driver.py
PARSING: 	SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_DATABASE: TESTDB	OK
PARSING: 	SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_ENCRYPTION: disabled	OK
PARSING: 	SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_ENCRYPTION-KEY: FakePassWord!	OK
PARSING: 	SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_PASSWORD: !54353Ffesf34	OK
PARSING: 	SPRING_DATA_MONGODB_REPLICASET: FAKE-DB-531	OK

Installing

pip3 install E2Yaml

Importing

import E2Yaml as ey

Loading

# example program loading from clipboard and outputting to clipboard
yml = ey.from_clipboard(log=True)

# converting a file
yml = ey.load_file('test_input.env', log=True)

# adding one line at a time
yml = EyConverter().add_line("SOME_TEXT=true")

Note: you can disable logging by not including the second parameter log=True

Preserving Words

Environment variables are delimited by '_' to indicate nesting in YAML and sometimes these characters are also used to define a variable. You can choose to preserve the letters by calling this function

yml.preserve_words('auditLog',
                    'logInsertsEnabled',
                    'kafkaEnabled',
                    'tibcoPublishes',
                    'tibcoSubscriptions',
                    'queue_connection_factory',
                    'inbound_queue',
                    'outbound_queue',
                    'retry_queue',
                    'pkt_dead_letter_queue',
                    'idle_concurrent',
                    'max_concurrent',
                    'connection_timeout',
                    'connection_attempts',
                    'reconnection_timeout',
                    'reconnection_attempts',
                    'replicaSet')

Note: environment variables are usually upper case and camel case is lost in translation. To preserve this, you can add the variable above as well.

Ignoring Lines

If you're loading in from a file or from your clipboard, you can ignore specific lines containing an attribute.

yml.ignore_lines_containing('JAVA_OPTS', 'CONVEYOR')

Converting

First, you need to call the function convert_to_dictionary(), which returns itself, allowing chaining. Then, setting the proper output to clipboard, stdout, or a file.

# in this case we are writing to the clipboard.
yml.convert_to_dictionary().to_clipboard()

# print to stdout
yml.convert_to_dictionary().show()

# print to file
yml.convert_to_dictionary().write_file('filename.yml'))

Examples

driver.py is an example program to write to read from the clipboard and writes back for easy copying and pasting
