You should never write secrets directly in code, instead provide them as runtime environment variables.

In order to accomplish this, declare a Latitude secret in the source details by prefixing any value with LATITUDE__.

For example:

type: postgres

At runtime, Latitude will check the environment for a LATITUDE__PASSWORD env var and use it.

Read more on how to declare env vars – for both local development and production builds – in the env vars section.

If you deploy with Latitude Cloud, you can store securely your secrets with Latitude CLI secrets command. Also available in our FREE tier
