Private environment variables for Contrib

Hi,

I was reading the Contributing.md file from the Freecodecamp repo and couldn’t understand where can I get the info from .env file.

This is what I get from the .env file. I was wondering if there is a page that explains better what is the use of these or where can I find the info to fill these.

I appreciate any input.

If you need these services, then you have to get them yourselves at each of those websites. For example, you go to https://developers.facebook.com/ and create a developer account. Then you follow the docs there to get the secret key and id to use for testing.

The best place to ask would be https://gitter.im/FreeCodeCamp/Contributors

I agree but it would be better to keep some information on the forum to then push it to the docs.
