dotenv method of managing secrets
Install the dotenv package: 

$ npm install dotenv


Create a `.env` file in the root of your project, and add your Webmention.io API key

```bash
WEBMENTION_IO_TOKEN=y0urKeyHeRe

Don't forget to add it to your .gitignore file. While we are here, let's add the _cache/ folder which will be created when we first fetch webmentions:

_cache/
_site/
node_modules/
.env

How I added dotenv support to Netlify is covered in this Stack Overflow answer.
