README

generic-env

generic-env lets you produce your generic type from a given subset of environment variables.

Usage

{-# LANGUAGE DeriveGeneric #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeApplications #-}

module Example1 where

import GenericEnv
import GHC.Generics
import System.Environment

data AppEnv = AppEnv { name :: String, ver :: String } deriving (Generic, Show)

main :: IO ()
main = do
  setEnv "APP_NAME" "wow"
  setEnv "APP_VER" "1.0"
  print =<< fromEnv @AppEnv (withPrefix "APP_")
> main
Right (AppEnv {name = "wow", ver = "1.0"})

Let's change our version from String to Float:

data AppEnv = AppEnv { name :: String, ver :: Float } deriving (Generic, Show)

and run the same code:

> main
Right (AppEnv {name = "wow", ver = 1.0})

Next, try making the version an integer:

data AppEnv = AppEnv { name :: String, ver :: Int } deriving (Generic, Show)
> main
Left "Could not parse value of type 'Int' for the field named 'ver' from environment variable 'APP_VER=1.0'"
