In this article, I share some thoughts about what made me want to be and continue to be a developer.
When using some API Clients (like REST Client or the HTTP Client of JetBrains' IDEs), environment variables are stored in JSON files that can contain secrets. To share these files within a team, developers tend to send them by email or by messaging applications, which is not very convenient nor secure 🔐. I thought it would be a good idea to store these secrets directly in an Azure Key Vault and automate the generation of a JSON file containing the secrets using Azure CLI and Nushell.
Once again, I found myself forgetting that
this is undefined. This is probably obvious for most developers but this is not a case I come across often so it's better to write it down so that I have something to refer to next time.
