       direnv - unclutter your .profile


       direnv command ...


       direnv  is an environment variable manager for your shell. It knows how to hook into bash,
       zsh and fish shell to load or unload  environment  variables  depending  on  your  current
       directory.  This allows you to have project-specific environment variables and not clutter
       the " /.profile" file.

       Before each prompt it checks for the existence of an .envrc file in the current and parent
       directories.  If  the  file  exists,  it  is loaded into a bash sub-shell and all exported
       variables are then captured by direnv and then made available to your current shell, while
       unset variables are removed.

       Because  direnv  is  compiled  into  a  single  static  executable it is fast enough to be
       unnoticeable on each prompt. It is also  language  agnostic  and  can  be  used  to  build
       solutions similar to rbenv, pyenv, phpenv, ...


              $ cd  /my_project
              $ echo ${FOO-nope}
              $ echo export FOO=foo > .envrc
              \.envrc is not allowed
              $ direnv allow .
              direnv: reloading
              direnv: loading .envrc
              direnv export: +FOO
              $ echo ${FOO-nope}
              $ cd ..
              direnv: unloading
              direnv export:  PATH
              $ echo ${FOO-nope}


       For  direnv to work properly it needs to be hooked into the shell. Each shell has it's own
       extension mechanism:

       Add the following line at the end of the  /.bashrc file:

              eval "$(direnv hook bash)"

       Make sure it appears even after rvm, git-prompt and other shell extensions that manipulate
       the prompt.

       Add the following line at the end of the  /.zshrc file:

              eval "$(direnv hook zsh)"

       Add the following line at the end of the  /.config/fish/ file:

              eval (direnv hook fish)

       Add the following line at the end of the  /.cshrc file:

              eval `direnv hook tcsh`


              $> direnv hook elvish >  /.elvish/lib/direnv.elv

       and add the following line to your  /.elvish/rc.elv file:

              use direnv


       In  some  target  folder,  create  an  .envrc  file  and  add  some export(1) and unset(1)
       directives in it.

       On the next prompt you will notice that direnv complains about the .envrc  being  blocked.
       This is the security mechanism to avoid loading new files automatically. Otherwise any git
       repo that you pull, or tar archive that you unpack, would be able to wipe your hard  drive
       once you cd into it.

       So  here  we are pretty sure that it won't do anything bad. Type direnv allow .  and watch
       direnv loading your new environment. Note that direnv edit . is a handy shortcut that open
       the  file  in your $EDITOR and automatically allows it if the file's modification time has

       Now that the environment is loaded you can notice that once you cd out of the directory it
       automatically  gets unloaded. If you cd back into it it's loaded again. That's the base of
       the mechanism that allows you to build cool things.

       Exporting variables by hand is a bit repetitive  so  direnv  provides  a  set  of  utility
       functions  that  are  made  available  in  the  context  of  the  .envrc  file.  Check the
       direnv-stdlib(1) man page for more details. You can also define your own extensions inside
       /.config/direnv/direnvrc or  /.config/direnv/lib/*.sh files.

       Hopefully this is enough to get you started.
