Environment variables are pairs of key-and-value commonly used by developers to encrypt authentication credentials, pass values in scripts and hide sensitive data in configuration files.
Today's release expands the feature with a list of default ENV VARs that you can use. The variables are automatically populated during each execution, holding such data as the branch from which the deploy was made or the ID of the execution.

The ENV VARs are available in all supported fields. To use a default variable, type
$BUDDY in the input, and Buddy will autosuggest the variables available. For example, you can use a default variable to automatically label zipped packages with the execution ID:
You use lots of tools to get web & app development done. Buddy creates more time in your day by helping you automate those tools.
