how to hide your secret infos, in #javascript ? 🤫

what you will need?
[ dotenv ] : it's a dependency that loads environment variables from '.env' files into process.env,

now, what is environment variables and process.env?
"environment variables": are variables whose definition is defined outside of the program, using name=value pairs syntax, typically through the functionality built into the operating system or microservice,
& which gets available for reference into your program as your needs.
"process.env": is a property in nodejs of process object, that returns an another object containing the user environment.
so, now we are done with some definitions lets come to the point for which this post was created,

first install the dotenv dependency into your working project directory by issuing:
=> npm install dotenv Image
since, dotenv is added to your package.json file, now
create a '.env' file in you working project directory &
write down your secret sauces you have to hide from masses 🙊 in name="value pairs". Image
then where you want this secret to have, go to that file and first access the dotenv's config functionality as show in pic below and use your secret as you wanted it to Image
woah 😊 you have finally achieved your mission, you can now console log to see your suceess. Image
