Deployment with meteor build and settings.json

So, I haven’t found a good answer to this, but I want to be able to have my Meteor.settings.public available on my deployed app. We are using meteor build, so AFAIK, the --settings settings.json flag isn’t available for that. I looked into exporting the Meteor.settings as part of my file, as export METEOR_SETTINGS=$(cat settings.json), but I don’t see the Meteor.settings.public in the browser console. Any suggestions on how to achieve this for deployment? Thanks!

If you’re on 1.3 you should try window.Meteor.settings.public in the console. Alternatively, in the code you need this ability use import {Meteor} from 'meteor/meteor'.

So when I console.log(Meteor.settings) in the browser console, I get Object {public: {}}

My bad. I didn’t dig far enough into the settings object.

So as per this, METEOR_SETTINGS is only populated if using the meteor build command - i.e., for production. I have to try this, but it seems a little weird that I can’t export the settings to test in development before pushing to production. Hopefully this works okay!

So this works. Again, just feels weird that I can’t export METEOR_SETTINGS in development.
