Ruby Question

env file for rails app not in right place? not being seen by rake

so first time working with rails i work with django

I tried deploying the local server and it failed because of a key error known as

s3_bucket_name
because I didn't have the ENV file which contained the variables

so then i got the ENV file and placed it in the root of the application.

then I tried to launch the app with no go.

Then I ran the command rake.

Which it complained:

C:\Users\chris\Documents\suitsandtables>rake
rake aborted!
Gem::LoadError: You have already activated rake 12.1.0, but your Gemfile requires rake 12.0.0. Prepending `bundle exec` to your command may solve this.


so then I ran what it suggested with
--trace


and I got the same returned. What am I doing wrong?

C:\Users\chris\Documents\suitsandtables>bundle exec rake --trace
** Invoke default (first_time)
** Invoke test (first_time)
** Execute test
rake aborted!
KeyError: key not found: "S3_BUCKET_NAME"

The error is caused by using Hash#fetch in config/initializers/s3.rb. That's a good thing. Don't change that. Your app requires that ENV value to work correctly, so it breaks if it's not set. (Everything within config/initializers/ runs on startup. This s3.rb file is not part of Rails core and was added by the app's author.)

Make sure your Gemfile has dotenv-rails specified. If it doesn't, add it (see https://github.com/bkeepers/dotenv) and type bundle in the terminal from your Rails root directory. (Note that dotenv-rails is also not part of Rails core.)

The root of your Rails app is the directory containing containing the files Gemfile, Gemfile.lock, etc. and the directories app/, bin/, config/, db/, lib/, etc. (i.e. C:/Users/chris/Documents/suitsandtables/). You can confirm by jumping into the Rails console (rails c or bundle exec rails c in the terminal) and typing Rails.root.

The env file should be named .env (thus the name of gem: dotenv) and should be located in your Rails root directory.

You can test your .env file through rails c by typing:

# in the rails console
ENV                   # your whole environment in a Hash
ENV["S3_BUCKET_NAME"] # your bucket name

Test all the environment values you're looking for. CaSe MaTtErS.

If you have any Rails servers or tasks running, restart them to pick up these changes.

The expected result of typing bundle exec rake is to run the tests. If you want to run the app itself, use rails s or bundle exec rails s.

p.s. Don't git add/commit your .env. It contains secrets. Make sure it is gitignored.
