Project configuration context
The following keys are available in any template strings within Project configurations, except the name field (which cannot be templated). See the Environment and Provider sections for additional keys available when configuring environments and providers, respectively.

${local.*}

Context variables that are specific to the currently running environment/machine.
Type
object

${local.artifactsPath}

The absolute path to the directory where exported artifacts from test and task runs are stored.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.artifactsPath}

${local.env.*}

A map of all local environment variables (see https://nodejs.org/api/process.html#process_process_env).
Type
object

${local.env.<env-var-name>}

The environment variable value.
Type
string

${local.arch}

A string indicating the architecture that the framework is running on (see https://nodejs.org/api/process.html#process_process_arch)
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.arch}

${local.platform}

A string indicating the platform that the framework is running on (see https://nodejs.org/api/process.html#process_process_platform)
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.platform}

${local.projectPath}

The absolute path to the project root directory.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.projectPath}

${local.username}

The current username (as resolved by https://github.com/sindresorhus/username).
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.username}

${local.usernameLowerCase}

The current username (as resolved by https://github.com/sindresorhus/username), with any upper case characters converted to lower case.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${local.usernameLowerCase}

${command.*}

Information about the currently running command and its arguments.
Type
object

${command.name}

The currently running Garden CLI command, without positional arguments or option flags. This can be handy to e.g. change some variables based on whether you're running garden test or some other specific command.
Note that this will currently always resolve to "run workflow" when running Workflows, as opposed to individual workflow step commands. This may be revisited at a later time, but currently all configuration is resolved once for all workflow steps.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${command.name}

${command.params.*}

A map of all parameters set when calling the current command. This includes both positional arguments and option flags, and includes any default values set by the framework or specific command. This can be powerful if used right, but do take care since different parameters are only available in certain commands, some have array values etc.
For example, to see if a service is in hot-reload mode, you might do something like ${command.params contains 'hot-reload' && command.params.hot-reload contains 'my-service'}. Notice that you currently need to check both for the existence of the parameter, and also to correctly handle the array value.
Option values can be referenced by the option's default name (e.g. dev-mode) or its alias (e.g. dev) if one is defined for that option.
Type
object

${command.params.<name>}

Type
any

${datetime.*}

Information about the date/time at template resolution time.
Type
object

${datetime.now}

The current UTC date and time, at time of template resolution, in ISO-8601 format.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${datetime.now}

${datetime.today}

The current UTC date, at time of template resolution, in ISO-8601 format.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${datetime.today}

${datetime.timestamp}

The current UTC Unix timestamp (in seconds), at time of template resolution.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${datetime.timestamp}

${project.*}

Information about the Garden project.
Type
object

${project.name}

The name of the Garden project.
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${project.name}

${git.*}

Information about the current state of the project's Git repository.
Type
object

${git.branch}

The current Git branch, if available. Resolves to an empty string if HEAD is in a detached state (e.g. when rebasing), or if the repository has no commits.
When using remote sources, the branch used is that of the project/top-level repository (the one that contains the project configuration).
The branch is resolved at the start of the Garden command's execution, and is not updated if the current branch changes during the command's execution (which could happen, for example, when using watch-mode commands).
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${git.branch}

${git.commitHash}

The current Git commit hash, if available. Resolves to an empty string if the repository has no commits.
When using remote sources, the hash used is that of the project/top-level repository (the one that contains the project configuration).
The hash is resolved at the start of the Garden command's execution, and is not updated if the current commit changes during the command's execution (which could happen, for example, when using watch-mode commands).
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${git.commitHash}

${git.originUrl}

The remote origin URL of the project Git repository.
When using remote sources, the URL is that of the project/top-level repository (the one that contains the project configuration).
Type
string
Example:
my-variable: ${git.originUrl}

${secrets.<secret-name>}

The secret's value.
Type
string
