This project usese environment variables to work. For most cases, the defaults work but some sensitive info like keys must be overridden. Copy the file in config/env.dist to .env in the project root and override the values.

When running with make run, it'll pick up these values automatically. If you're doing it the hard way, you'll have to source them. You must set the DEAD_DROP_ACCOUNT_SID to match your account sid. This is so dead drop can filter out calls from other accounts.
