Here is a snapshot of my code depicting how I’m trying to implement the variables:

Here is the .env and the output when I try to login. You can see that VUE_APP_API_URL is not being interpolated. I don’t understand why.

I’m no Vue expert, but I think you want to be using process.env in your client-side code to inject environment variables.
