Serverless plugin to encode any environment variable objects.

AWS Lambda/CloudFormation does not allow for environment variables to be of type object.

This Serverless plugin will check any environment variables under provider and functions. If the environment variable is an object the plugin will resave the variable as a base64 stringified version.

Base64 encoding is required because commas are not allowed in AWS Lambda environment variables.

To use, add it to your serverless.yml under plugins:

plugins:
  - serverless-plugin-encode-env-var-objects

Select specific environment variable names to encode by including an array of names as under the custom property encodeEnvObjects. If encodeEnvObjects is not defined, all objects will be encoded. Example:

custom:
  encodeEnvObjects:
    - ONLY_THIS_ENV
