Increase the Now environment variables size from 4kb max

Increase the Now environment variables size from 4kb max

February 1, 2020 at 1:39am

I currently have 12 secrets, including some private keys that are pretty long. I've apparently exceeded the 4kb limit and can no longer deploy.

Is there any way to increase the 4kb limit?

The limit on env variables is too strict (or an alternative way for file secrets like Google's key.json)

There is no way. We are since last year discussing possible solutions... We want to make sure your secrets are really secrets and therefore we will not move from the upstream provider limitation very soon.

Check https://zeit.co/pgdm/encrypted-data/mucp1kd62/source as an example of alternative

It's 4kb total for all of your env variables, correct?

How much does that solution decrease the size? I'm trying to prevent this from happening again when I need some other secrets in a week or a month.

Edit: Ah, okay I think I see it. The env variable is only the key, so it's really small. How do you do the actual encrypting of the data.xml file? I see that command in the README encrypt-data.js but I don't know where that comes from.
