Environment variables

PGSync uses the dotenv module for reading a .env file. You can declare environment variables in a .env file located at the root of your application.

Alternatively, you can set environment variables manually. e.g

$ export PG_USER=kermit-the-frog
$ export PG_USER=localhost
$ export PG_PORT=5432
$ export PG_PASSWORD=******
