Command-line tool for generating environment variables from AWS Secrets

Project description

[![Build Status](](

# secret2env

Command-line tool for generating sourcable environment variables from secrets
in AWS Secrets Manager using a YAML definition.

## Installation

pip install secrets2env

## Environment Definition

Below is an example environment definition. The values for environment variables
will be generated using `.format()` and keyword arguments.

- secret: aws/secret-name
value: "{key1-in-secret}"
- secret: production/postgresql
name: PSQL_URI
value: "postgresql://{username}:{password}@postgresql:5432/{dbname}"

## Usage

A definition like the one above is expected in `./aws-secrets.yml`. Running
`secrets2env` will print a sourceable environment to STDOUT which can be
`eval`d or redirected to an environment file.

# Autogenerated by <path/to/installed/>
export ENV_SECRET='some-secret'
export PSQL_URI='postgresql://pg-user:pg-pw@postgresql:5432/pgdb'

# eval directly
eval "`secrets2env`"
# or redirect to file
echo -e "\n`secrets2env`" >>

## Limitations / TODOs

* currently only supports `SecretString`
* currently only supports OsX and Linux
* no automated tests
