Typenv

go.dev go report codecov

Typenv is a minimalistic, zero dependency, typed environment variables library. It does support the following types:

  • Bool
  • Duration
  • Float64
  • Float32
  • Int64
  • Int32
  • Int8
  • Int
  • String

Why typenv?

Handling environment variables in other type than strings or even handling fallback values is not a simple task, typenv makes easy to handle string, boolean, integer, float and time duration environment variables and also allows you to easily set default values for then.

How to use it

Basic usage

Go get the library:

go get diegomarangoni.dev/typenv

And use it:

if typenv.Bool("DEBUG") {
    // do something
}

If the environment is NOT set, the zero value of the type will return, in this case false.

With default value

You can fallback to a default value in case the environment variable is not set.

if typenv.Bool("DEBUG", true) {
    // do something
}

If the environment is NOT set, the return value will be true.

With global default value

You can also set a global default value for a environment. Useful when you use the same environment with same default value several times.

func init() {
    typenv.SetGlobalDefault(
        typenv.E(typenv.Bool, "DEBUG", true),
    )
}

...

if typenv.Bool("DEBUG") {
    // do something
}

If the environment is NOT set, the return value will be true.

Overriding global default value

You still can override the global default value by setting a local default.

func init() {
    typenv.SetGlobalDefault(
        typenv.E(typenv.Bool, "DEBUG", true),
    )
}

...

if typenv.Bool("DEBUG", false) {
    // do something
}

If environment is NOT set, the return value will be false, even if global default is telling that is true.
