Specific VITE env variable not caught

dataProvider={icDataProvider(import.meta.env.VITE_DATA_PROVIDER_BACKEND_URL)} Every other env var I set up works, and in the Docker I do see the value when I run printenv: VITE_DATA_PROVIDER_BACKEND_URL=http://localhost:3001

Hi @guyazu36🎗🇮🇱. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the knowledge sources, there seems to be an issue with the Refine CLI and how it handles environment variables, specifically with Vite's dotenv conventions. In the Github issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/5803), it's mentioned that the Refine CLI automatically loads values in the .env file which appear to persist in the environment when executing the Vite commands. This can take precedence and effectively break the .env.local, .env.development, etc. conventions of Vite. As a workaround, you could try renaming your .env file to .env.production. This file appears to not be loaded by the Refine CLI, and then your app might build as expected. However, this is an unfortunate workaround, effectively forcing you to not use the .env file and "layering" of settings. The issue is open and the team is open to contributions. They are also considering getting rid of parsing dotenv files in CLI and letting the underlying framework (Vite, NextJs) take care of it. Please keep an eye on the issue for updates or potential fixes. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how to set up a docker compose with multiple env files and refine?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Setting up Docker Compose with multiple environment files in a Refine project involves a few steps. Here's a general guide based on the information provided in the knowledge sources: 1. Create environment-specific Docker Compose files: For each environment (e.g., development, staging, production), create a separate Docker Compose file. These files should be named appropriately, such as docker-compose.production.yml, docker-compose.staging.yml, and docker-compose.development.yml. Each file should contain the environment variables and configurations specific to its environment.
version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
environment:
- NODE_ENV=production
- DATABASE_URL=...

version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
environment:
- NODE_ENV=production
- DATABASE_URL=...

2. Use the -f or --file option with docker-compose: To use the environment-specific Docker Compose files, use the -f or --file option with the docker-compose command. This option allows you to specify which Docker Compose file to use.
docker-compose -f docker-compose.staging.yml up

docker-compose -f docker-compose.staging.yml up

3. Override configurations with environment-specific files: Docker Compose allows you to override configurations using environment-specific files. These override files can hold different values for any configurations specified in the main docker-compose.yml file. To override configurations, create another file (e.g., docker-compose.development.override.yml) in the same directory that contains the environment-specific values. Then, run the docker-compose command that explicitly specifies the file to override on the base file.
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.development.override.yml config

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.development.override.yml config

Remember to replace the placeholders in the examples with your actual values. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Refine Docker Compose blog post (https://refine.dev/blog/docker-compose). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai can you show the same but with the env_file key?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Sure, you can use the env_file key in your Docker Compose file to specify a file containing environment variables. Here's how you can do it: 1. Create .env files: For each environment (e.g., development, staging, production), create a separate .env file. These files should be named appropriately, such as myenvfile.production.env, myenvfile.staging.env, and myenvfile.development.env. Each file should contain the environment variables and configurations specific to its environment.
# myenvfile.production.env
NODE_ENV=production
DATABASE_URL=...

# myenvfile.production.env
NODE_ENV=production
DATABASE_URL=...

2. Specify the .env file in Docker Compose: In your Docker Compose file, use the env_file key to specify the path to the .env file for each service.
version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
env_file: myenvfile.production.env

version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
env_file: myenvfile.production.env

3. Run Docker Compose: Run the docker-compose command as usual. Docker Compose will automatically load the environment variables from the specified .env file.
docker-compose up

docker-compose up

Remember to replace the placeholders in the examples with your actual values. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Refine Docker Build Args and Environment Variables blog post (https://refine.dev/blog/docker-build-args-and-env-vars#using-env-file). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai yes - but I have multiple env_files

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If you have multiple environment files, you can specify all of them in your Docker Compose file using the env_file key. Docker Compose allows you to provide multiple files as a list. The environment variables are read in the order they are listed, and later values will override earlier ones in the list if they have the same name. Here's an example:
version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
env_file:
- myenvfile.common.env
- myenvfile.production.env
version: '3'
services:
app:
build: .
env_file:
- myenvfile.common.env
- myenvfile.production.env
In this example, myenvfile.common.env contains environment variables that are common to all environments, and myenvfile.production.env contains environment variables that are specific to the production environment. If the same variable is defined in both files, the value in myenvfile.production.env will take precedence. You can then run Docker Compose as usual:
docker-compose up
docker-compose up
Remember to replace the placeholders in the examples with your actual values. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Refine Docker Build Args and Environment Variables blog post (https://refine.dev/blog/docker-build-args-and-env-vars#using-env-file). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai yes - exactly that isn't working in my refine vite app

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with environment variables in your Refine Vite app. Unfortunately, the knowledge sources provided do not contain specific information about troubleshooting this issue in a Refine Vite app with Docker Compose and multiple environment files. However, here are a few general troubleshooting steps you can try: 1. Check your .env file syntax: Ensure that your .env files are correctly formatted. There should be no spaces around the equals sign, and if your values contain spaces, they should be wrapped in quotes. 2. Check your Docker Compose file syntax: Make sure you've correctly specified the env_file key in your Docker Compose file. The value should be a list of file paths, each on a new line and indented under the env_file key. 3. Check your file paths: Ensure that the paths to your .env files are correct. If the files are in the same directory as your Docker Compose file, you should be able to specify just the file name. If they're in a different directory, you'll need to provide the relative path from the Docker Compose file. 4. Check your environment variable usage: Make sure you're correctly using the environment variables in your Refine Vite app. In Vite, you can access environment variables in your JavaScript code using import.meta.env. If you're still having trouble, it might be helpful to look for more specific information or ask for help in the Refine community (https://discord.com/invite/refine). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
