I’ve been working to move to Circle 2. Just pulled the
config-translation file which looked great. On the first run though I found that the environment variables are not quoted when they are re-written.
Thought it might be worth a report.
My old circle.yml had:
machine: environment: API_CONSUMER_KEY: Testing Testing 1 2
and when it got converted to Circle 2, I got
- run: working_directory: ~/my_project/dir command: echo -e "export API_CONSUMER_KEY=Testing Testing 1 2\nexport ..."
Which fails in the shell with an error:
/tmp/.bash_env-5a9cb170c9e77c00017a6dac-0-build: line 1: export: `1': not a valid identifier
It feels like the converter could be a tiny bit smarter and wrap those with quotes as needed.
I manually updated the line to read
command: echo -e "export API_CONSUMER_KEY='Testing Testing 1 2'\nexport..."
and this got me rolling. But it might be nice if that was a bit smoother for folks.
