Question

How to setup a staging environment

Hey, I would like to have two different apps (nuxt apps) one for staging (testing things) and one for production. I set those up under Apps and everything is running so far. But how can I distinguish between production and staging environment?

For production I use following run command NODE_ENV=production yarn start

But if I do this for staging somehow it doesn’t work!

By now I have set an Environment Variable NODE_ENV=staging and use the run command: yarn start

But I got told I should not set NODE_ENV as env vars at all!

So what can I do? What is the correct approach here!

Hi @alexandergutheil,

After going over the Community, I found a similar question here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-handle-a-staging-production-pipelin-with-app-platform

It’s not exactly the same but it can be used as examples or suggestions on how to continue.

Additionally, according to this Docs:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/how-to/use-environment-variables/

You can use the vars.
