CLI

dotenv-vault new

Create your project with dotenv-vault.

1. Run new command

$ npx dotenv-vault new

local:    Press y (or any key) to open up the browser to create a new project vault (.env.vault) or q to exit: y
local:    Opening browser to https://vault.dotenv.org/new?project_name=Name
local:    Waiting for project vault (.env.vault) to be created... ⡿

2. Name your project

On the page that opens, name your project (typically prefilled for you), and enter your email address.

3. View .env.vault (optional)

A .env.vault was generated for your project. It uniquely identifies your project in dotenv-vault. Think of it like a unique git url at GitHub. It identifies your project so that you (and your teammates) pull the correct .env from dotenv-vault.

Run ls -al to view it.

$ ls -al
Jul 28 17:54 .
Jul 27 13:46 ..
Jul 27 14:51 .env
Jul 28 18:09 .env.vault
Jul 28 17:54 .gitignore
...

That’s it!
