How can I set NODE ENV production on Windows

0 votes

In Ubuntu it's quite simple; I can run the application using:

$ NODE_ENV=production node myapp/app.js

However, this doesn't work on Windows. Is there a configuration file where I can set the attribute?

Hello @kartik,

It would be ideal if you could set parameters on the same line as your call to start Node.js on Windows. Look at the following and run it exactly as stated:

You have these two options:

  1. At the command line:

    set NODE_ENV=production&&npm start

    or

    set NODE_ENV=production&&node index.js
  2. The trick for it to work on Windows is you need to remove the whitespace before and after the "&&". Configured your package.json file with start_windows (see below) below. Then Run "npm run start_windows" at the command line.

    //package.json
    
    "scripts": {
      "start": "node index.js"
      "start_windows": "set NODE_ENV=production&&node index.js"

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
