Environment Variables

Global environment variables to be passed down to all hooks and builds.

This is useful for GO111MODULE, for example. You can have your .goreleaser.yml file like the following:

# .goreleaser.yml
env:
  - GO111MODULE=on
  - FOO={{ .Env.FOOBAR }}
  - ENV_WITH_DEFAULT={{ if index .Env "ENV_WITH_DEFAULT"  }}{{ .Env.ENV_WITH_DEFAULT }}{{ else }}default_value{{ end }}
before:
  hooks:
    - go mod tidy
builds:
- binary: program

This way, both go mod tidy and the underlying go build will have GO111MODULE set to on.

The root env section also accepts templates.
