Python 3/ Secret Keys for everyone
Zertyazertyu (2)

Hello, i'm a newbie on, so I cheked the doc to see how we can hide files (with .env file). It works fine for some projects but now i want to make a kind of console that requests username and password to start (if the guy enters his logins he gets a key to decode the content of other files to read them). My code works.. only for me ! The reason is that .env files are protected for others peoples so i can't really finish my project (it's for a RP game)

Is there any alternatives to .env files ? I want that only the program can read .env files but users can't directly access to it with filetree.

I'm on python 3 but if solutions are only on others languages I can migrate
Sorry for my bad english, I'm french

@heyitsmarcus I got the same problem when I try to launch your repl

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 15, in <module>
    print(".ENV USERNAME: " + USERNAME)
TypeError: must be str, not NoneType

The getenv function returns a None type when it fails (no .env file in this case)
