Replied to How Can Mix Use Different Production Environment Variables?

There are some reasons why we don't do this, but it is definitely another viable option. I actually just set up the laravel-mix env extension and it's working perfectly. A few lines of code and you get to choose which env to set for which build type.

Replied to How Can Mix Use Different Production Environment Variables?

I'm having the same issue and was wondering what the "official" solution to this is. I think one way to handle it would be to have separate .env files for dev and production, and then use a package like the following to switch between them based on what you're building for.

https://laravel-mix.com/extensions/env-file

The other option is to just use your production endpoint for Pusher, but prefix all channels with "local-" if you're running on local development. This would ensure that your local testing won't interact inadvertently with any of your live channels. Since Pusher bills you based on your account and not per app, it really doesn't matter if you use production or dev environments for testing.

Replied to Handle HEIC Images

I have the same issue. Imagick works fine with JPEG, PNG, etc. But HEIC images break it. I think there is a way to install imagick specifically with HEIC support but I don't want to break everything and hate doing full re-installs and messing with .ini files if I don't have to. Anybody have any further insight on this?
