Using env variables in Javascript with different local/production values

Posted 1 year ago by lmartins

I'm working on a application that is connected to Algolia. Because I'm working locally with test data, I need to connect my local install to a different Algolia index, so I'm using .env variable to set different keys for my local and remote installs. Then, in Javascript, I'm reading those values using process.env.MIX_ALGOLIA_APP_ID which sadly isn't enough as these values will still be compiled using my local values when running npm prod. How do you typically approach this? Thanks!
