Environment variables

Singlepage relies on some environment variables that control aspects of its runtime behavior. We recommend using your hosting provider's mechanism for setting these environment variables but you can also define them in .env* files. During development time, singlepage serve will pick up the environment properties from .env.development file; if that does not exist it will load it from .env file. When singlepage build creates the app distribution, it will copy your .env.production file (or .env file if it does not exist) to .env file in the distribution root directory.

The environment variables recognized by Singlepage are listed below.
