The Vercel integration allows you to seamlessly synchronize environment variables from your Vercel projects with the corresponding Defer environments. It also enables those Vercel projects to use Defer without any configuration.
To use our Vercel integration, you’ll need at least a Vercel project linked to a Github repository.
If you don’t yet have a Defer account, you can go and integrate Vercel with Defer, the integration flow will take you to Defer to do so.
