Mojolicious::Command::secret - Create application secrets() consisting of random bytes


If your Mojolicious version is less than 4.63 then you must use version 0.02 of this module.


Tired of manually creating and adding secrets? Me too! Use this command to create secrets and automatically add them to your Mojolicous or Mojolicious::Lite application:

 ./script/your_app secret
 ./lite_app secret

This will modify the appropriate application file, though existing secrets will not be overridden unless the -f option is used.

It is assumed that your file contains UTF-8 data and that you use $self or app to refer to your application instance.

If you do not want to automatically add secrets to your application use the mojo secret command or the -p option and the secrets will be printed to STDOUT instead:

 mojo secret
 ./script/your_app secret -p


 -c, --count     N              Generate N secrets. Defaults to 1.
 -f, --force                    Overwrite an existing secret. Defaults to 0.
 -g, --generator MODULE=method  Module & method to generate the secret. The method must
                                accept an integer argument. Defaults to Crypt::URandom=urandom.
                                and Crypt::OpenSSL::Random=random_bytes
 -p, --print                    Print the secret, do not add it to your application.
 -s, --size      SIZE           Number of bytes to use. Defaults to 32.

Default options can be added to the MOJO_SECRET_OPTIONS environment variable.
