Or manually update require-dev block of composer.json and run composer update.

    "require-dev": {
        "dragon-code/env-sync": "^3.0"

Upgrade from andrey-helldar/env-sync

  1. In your composer.json file, replace "andrey-helldar/env-sync": "^2.0" with "dragon-code/env-sync": "^3.0".
  2. Replace the Helldar\EnvSync namespace with DragonCode\EnvSync in your app;
  3. Run the command composer update.
  4. Profit!

How to use

This package scans files with *.php, *.json, *.yml, *.yaml and *.twig extensions in the specified folder, receiving from them calls to the env and getenv functions. Based on the received values, the package creates a key-value array. When saving, the keys are split into blocks by the first word before the _ character.

Also, all keys are sorted alphabetically.


Native using

To call a command in your application, you need to do the following:

use DragonCode\EnvSync\Services\Syncer;

protected function syncer(): Syncer
    return Syncer::make();

protected function sync()

If you want to define default values or specify which key values should be stored, you need to pass an array to the constructor of the Config class:

use DragonCode\EnvSync\Services\Syncer;

protected function syncer(): Syncer
    return Syncer::make($this->config());

protected function config(): array
    return require realpath(__DIR__ . '/your-path/your-config.php');

You can also suggest your implementation by sending a PR. We will be glad 😊
