Meteor Settings or Environment Variables?


Which should I use? Environment variables or settings.json. I don’t want to use both.



if you Dockerize I don’t see the issue with env


Hi, we prefer also a well defined set of YAML setting files. You may have look on that package – looking forward to your feedback. If you prefer JSON files, you can also use those with the above package.


Hmm. You only get the configs after Meteor.startup? Thats not very nice. It looks like this is a very similar approach to Meteor.settings though right?


Hi, the settings are loaded through Package meteor on a very early stage during bootstrap.

Normally this is the first package which is loaded and is implied by meteor-platform. This package exports the Meteor var also.


@ccorcos - … or did you reflect your question to our package (env-settings) ?
