Defer enables moving slow code in the background without refactoring or new concepts to learn.
However, until recently, we asked you to copy and paste your environment variables to set up a new application or, for each new environment:
While environment variables can be copy pasted directly from a .env file, it was not the promised seamless developer experience.
As a first step of a deeply integrated Defer Platform and smooth end-to-end developer experience, we are happy to roll out the beta support for Doppler.
Asked and used by many of us, Doppler enables you to manage environment variables and secrets by automatically synchronizing changes across the SaaS and PaaS of your stack.
Enabling Doppler on a given environment is simple; add a DOPPLER_TOKEN environment variable with the proper API key:
Applying the setting changes will automatically start a new build that will get the proper environment variables assigned. The same goes for new executions.
For a complete guide, please refer to our documentation.
As stated earlier, this is the first step in integrating Defer perfectly with your existing tools, as we will soon start working on an official Doppler and Vercel integration.

Most of Defer Scheduler's features are now available locally for a smoother experience.
Our Scheduler is now directly accessible for advanced use cases such as building a configurable notifications system, create batches of executions or user configurable worflows.
