This library attempts to improve the use of OS environment variables and
application configuration. You would create a settings module e.g:

defmodule Settings do
  use Skogsra

  # Rather equivalent to `System.get_env("POSTGRES_PORT") || 5432` (misses
  # the automatic casting to integer). Generates the function
  # `Settings.postgres_port/0`.
  @spec portgres_port() :: integer()
  system_env :postgres_port,
    default: 5432

  # Equivalent to
  # ```
  # System.get_env("POSTGRES_HOSTNAME") ||
  # (Application.get_env(:my_app, MyApp.Repo, []) |>
  #  Keyword.get(:hostname, "localhost"))
  # ```
  # Generates the function Settings.postgres_hostname/0
  @spec postgres_hostname() :: binary()
  app_env :postgres_hostname, :my_app, :hostname,
    domain: MyApp.Repo
    default: "localhost"

It can be used in the configuration file as well e.g:

config :my_app, MyApp.Repo,
  adapter: Ecto.Adapters.Postgres,
  hostname: Skogsra.get_env("POSTGRES_HOSTNAME", "localhost"),
  port: Skogsra.get_env_as(:integer, "POSTGRES_PORT", "5432"),

Or from a module:

defmodule MyApp do
  @port Skogsra.get_app_env "POSTGRES_PORT", :my_app, :port,
    domain: MyApp.Repo,
    default: 5432

  @spec get_port() :: integer()
  def get_port, do: @port
