Expand description

Optionally inspects an environment variable at compile time.

If the named environment variable is present at compile time, this will expand into an expression of type Option<&'static str> whose value is Some of the value of the environment variable. If the environment variable is not present, then this will expand to None. See Option<T> for more information on this type. Use std::env::var instead if you want to read the value at runtime.

A compile time error is never emitted when using this macro regardless of whether the environment variable is present or not. To emit a compile error if the environment variable is not present, use the env! macro instead.


let key: Option<&'static str> = option_env!("SECRET_KEY");
println!("the secret key might be: {key:?}");
