Doppler in script shebang

It would be great to be able to use doppler in the script shebang. On MacOS, this actually works

#!/usr/bin/env doppler run -- /bin/bash

But then you get a nasty surprise on linux—no support for shebang args! So then you have to do this:

#!/bin/bash
set -euo pipefail
quoted_args="$(printf "${1+ %q}" "$@")"
bash_source="${BASH_SOURCE:-$0}"
bash_script="$(tail -n +9 $bash_source)"
bash_script_with_variables="bash_source=\"$bash_source\""$'\n'"quoted_args=\"$quoted_args\""$'\n'"$bash_script"
doppler run --command="/bin/bash -c '$bash_script_with_variables'"
exit 0

# workaround for #!/usr/bin/env doppler run -- /bin/bash
# - no arguments on linux https://stackoverflow.com/a/4304187
# - fail on error "set -euo pipefail"
# - quoted args https://superuser.com/a/403369
# - skip lines https://stackoverflow.com/a/604871
# - bash source https://stackoverflow.com/a/63072463
# - concat variables with newline https://stackoverflow.com/a/21145867
# - bash -c https://stackoverflow.com/a/20858440

It’s long and ugly, but it works. I’d love for doppler to have a bin script that is basically just bash with the right env.

Hi there!

You might find this helpful:

Essentially, you do this:

set -a
source <(doppler secrets download --no-file --format env)
set +a

set -a causes all the environment variables set to be exported. Putting that at the top of your script should populate all your variables without having things get too messy for you!

Hmm, that doesn’t seem to be working

Found a workaround
