I want to work with local variables

Hi there, I have an implementation with NextJS and AntDesign using Refine but in some cases I don't see data because data is coming from api-fake-refine-dev api. But in this case data is not coming to api. I am writing code for poc and api is not ready for this case. But I want to see variables. Can you give advice for this reason?

Hi @emincanoguz. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet regarding handling local variables specifically for your scenario with NextJS, AntDesign, and Refine without a ready API. However, for working with environment variables in a Next.js project, which might be relevant to managing API URLs or keys before your API is ready, you can refer to the method described in the blog post about using environment variables in Next.js. This approach involves creating an env.local file in your project root directory and accessing these variables in your data fetching methods or API routes. Here's a brief overview based on the extract provided: 1. Create an env.local file in your project root directory. 2. Add your variables to this file. For example:
API_URL='<https://your_api_url_here'>
API_KEY='your_secret_api_key_here'

API_URL='<https://your_api_url_here'>
API_KEY='your_secret_api_key_here'

3. Access these variables in your Next.js data fetching methods like getServerSideProps using process.env. For example:
export async function getServerSideProps() {
const response = await axios({
method: "put",
url: process.env.API_URL,
header: {
Authorization: process.env.API_KEY,
},
data: {
id: 12,
},
});
}

export async function getServerSideProps() {
const response = await axios({
method: "put",
url: process.env.API_URL,
header: {
Authorization: process.env.API_KEY,
},
data: {
id: 12,
},
});
}

This method allows you to manage and use variables across your application securely and efficiently, even if the actual API or data isn't ready yet. You can simulate API responses or endpoints using these environment variables until your backend is prepared. For more detailed guidance on using environment variables in Next.js, you might find the blog post on Refine's website helpful: How to use environment variables in Next.js (https://refine.dev/blog/next-js-environment-variables#how-to-use-environment-variables-in-nextjs). If your question is more about handling local state or variables within Refine components or hooks, I recommend checking the official Refine documentation or their community support channels for more specific advice. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
