A Self Updating CLI

Improvement

For Homebrew users, you can now update the Doppler CLI with the doppler update command as of version 3.1.0.

Hello Root Configs, Goodbye Defaults

New
April 8, 2020

Welcome to a more intuitive way to manage your secrets. Root configs work just like defaults but also comes with service tokens, Heroku sync, versioning, and much more.

Secret Substitution

Improvement
March 5, 2020

Have you ever needed to combine secrets together? Maybe a shared hostname? Today you can reference secrets from within other secrets.

Additional OTP 2FA Setup Methods

Security
March 2, 2020

We've added support for setting up OTP via a manual key. This is in addition to the primary method of scanning a QR code. If you haven't set up OTP yet, try it out today!

All Clients are End of Life

New
February 27, 2020

…except for the new Doppler CLI. The legacy Node CLI and Node, Python, and Ruby clients will continue to work with our v1 APIs, but will NOT receive any security updates, bug fixes, or new features.

The new Doppler CLI is written in Go to ensure it remains lightweight, incredibly fast, and compatible on any OS without dependencies. Plus, it ensures your secrets are always encrypted.

UI Improvements

The Fastest Doppler Ever

Improvement
February 17, 2020

We've reduced our total page size by ~98% and load time by ~35%. To accomplish this, we now cache all static, public assets for up to 1 year. Assets are also cached by our globally-distributed CDN, meaning assets will always be served from a location near you.

Technical details:

We content-address all of our static assets. This is a method of naming the asset based on its content, typically using a hash function. Content-addressing ensures immutability by guaranteeing that the asset's name changes whenever its content does. For example, instead of loading doppler-logo.png, we load something like doppler-logo-a24a706d.png.

This funky naming enables us to crank caching up to the max. We specify a cache policy of public, max-age=31536000, immutable, must-revalidate. Let's break down what this means:

  • public allows the asset to be cached by your browser and by our CDN
  • max-age=31536000 indicates the asset can be cached for 1 year
  • immutable asserts that the content really doesn't need to be rechecked if unexpired (why we need this)
  • must-revalidate ensures that the asset is re-requested once it expires

Evangelizing Two-Factor Auth

Security
February 13, 2020

Our users trust Doppler with their secrets. In return, Doppler trusts users to take account security seriously. After all, the most secure systems are still only as secure as their weakest link.

To help improve account security for all users, we'll now prompt you to set up 2FA on your next login. We'll also do so after performing a password reset.

This helps ensure your secrets are shielded from poor password hygiene, which is an ongoing goal of ours.

Compare Secrets

New
February 10, 2020

Ever wanted to compare your database url or any other secret across development to production? With the Compare Secret feature, you can!

Activity Logs Diffs

CLI v2.0

New
February 3, 2020

This major release is packed with features for local development.

Here's one: doppler run now automatically keeps a local, encrypted backup of your secrets. If the Doppler API or your internet connection ever goes down, you'll still be able to boot your app.

Remember, the CLI only takes 3 steps to set up locally:

  1. brew install dopplerhq/cli/doppler / scoop / docker / other
  2. doppler login && doppler enclave setup
  3. doppler run -- node server.js <- or whatever your app is!

For a full list of new features and breaking changes, check out the release notes.

(Ok, we cheated on step 2 with the &&. But we also included the installation, which we could've left out, just to show you how easy that is too!)

Enclave Webhooks

New
January 17, 2020

Automate your infrastructure with webhooks from Doppler. Get notified when anything in your Enclave project changes.

Brownie Points: Doppler signs the webhook request with a secret you provide to verify it is coming from us.

2FA: OTP Support

Security
January 13, 2020

Protect your account with OTP 2FA, an open standard for two-factor authentication.

Strengthening Service Tokens

Security
January 10, 2020

To encourage best practices, service tokens are now only displayed once during initial creation. After creation, you'll need to generate a new service token to retrieve its value. This helps ensure that you're using a unique service token for each service.
