I am new to the Elixir and Pheonix world. I have been building an app to learn and so far it has been awesome and having lots of fun. One thing that I have come up against that I can not figure out is related to environment variables. I have a .env file that I source before I start phx.server. It has been working great until I change some of the values today. I am setting them in my config.ex like so:
config :days, paypal_host: System.get_env("PAYPAL_HOST")
and then calling it in my module like so:
@host Application.get_env(:days, :paypal_host)
I am sure it is my lack of understanding how the pheonix app is built but when I change the
PAYPAL_HOST environment var I need to either remove the
_build folder or make a change to my module for the change to be picked up.
Is this the normal process? Hopefully this makes sense and I can answer any questions.
Thank you and thank you for this community!
