How to load env for Nuxt layers

How to load env variables for a Nuxt project in a monorepo

When working on project that use a monorepo with Nuxt Layers, we will need to load
environment variables that are located on the root of the project:

- Project-root
    - packages
        - shared-ui
        - shared-auth
        - shared-content
        - main-app
    -.env -> use this for all the layers

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The solution for this problem is really:

"scripts": {
    "build": "nuxt build",
    "dev": "nuxt dev --dotenv ../../.env",//<- put the path of your env file
    "generate": "nuxt generate",
    "preview": "nuxt preview",
    "postinstall": "nuxt prepare"

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For build and other scripts, this will be the same as well.

Please if anyone have a better way please comment below and let's learn together

Can someone submit this article to the Daily dev, I can't do my self no enough reputation just 10 at the moment

This is pretty informative! Just a quick question—how does this approach handle different environments like staging or production?
