I am new to meteor, want to know why staging environment is not getting set as like development and production.
I have a staging environment that I set up in Meteor using the
settings.json file that can be accessed via
Meteor.settings and it works perfectly
Make sure when you run or deploy Meteor that you are using something like:
meteor --settings settings-staging.json
Deploying to Galaxy:
DEPLOY_HOSTNAME=us-east-1.galaxy-deploy.meteor.com meteor deploy staging.yourdomain.com --settings settings-staging.json
You make your app rely on the data in the
settings-staging.json file by using the
Meteor.settings API which never needs to be changed in your app.
This a really great Meteor design! Hope you enjoy Meteor.
@mullojo Thanks for your valuable feedback. Locally it works perfectly! Just want to know one more thing that my staging environment is running with Docker so I need to confirm whether I should just add DEPLOY_HOSTNAME… inside Dockerfile to rely my staging Data on it?
OK so guys i finally dive into it and got the solution for it.
We only need to make couples of changes -
1- We have to add ENV METEOR_SETTINGS="" in docker file located on the root directory of our project.
2- Run the docker after build get compile successfully with command including the value of setting, as in my case it was :- docker run -e METEOR_SETTINGS="$(cat settings/staging.json)" .
It will start taking data of your json kept in this file which you need to rely on staging.
