You can't hide anything in HTML. When a client opens your page, your HTML is sent to the client, which means they can read anything that is sent to the client. never trust the client. Your best option is to hide something in the server and have the client request it in a secure way.

At the sidebar of your repl, click on the padlock button and there you can enter your keys and values.
That is your .env file content
You can then use the same functions to get that hidden data that you use for the .env file
