Environment Configuration for JavaScript Apps

Presented by: David Truxall

For traditional server-side web apps, environment-specific configuration is handled in a variety of ways, including environment variables, configuration files or password stores. But a front-end web app running in a framework like React or Vue can’t really use these same techniques since they typically run in the browser, not in the server environment. Yet they still need environment-specific configurations.

Fortunately, this problem can be breached at either build-time or run-time. This session demonstrates techniques for both, allowing you to manage your DevOps pipelines to create environment configurations appropriate to your situation. You’ll see WebPack for build-time configuration and run-time solutions hybridizing known server-side solutions, as well as using containers in Kubernetes.
