How to remove/delete an exported environment variable?
I was working with a remote API and I exported my API key so that I could have it available as an environment variable for my current shell session, as follows:
- export API_KEY=MY_API_KEY_HERE
However my workflow requires that at some point this env variable should be deleted, but I don’t want to log out and log in back again each time.
What is a good way to delete an environment variable?
