Bunyan is used for logging into JSON, which is great for feeding for example into Elastic Search for analytic - https://github.com/trentm/node-bunyan The log is piped to STDOUT so you need to pipe it into a file > /var/log/yrpri.log
To build a client_dist production folder with vulcanized web components

Google Analytics can be disabled through DISABLE_GA=1
For SMTP support define SMTP_SERVER, SMTP_USERNAME, SMTP_PASSWORD and SMTP_PORT. We assume security through STARTTLS negotiation.
When using Heroku SENDGRID_USERNAME, and SENDGRID_PASSWORD need to be defined.

If you are running behind a web server like nginx and want to disable production to force https, you can define an ENV variable as DISABLE_FORCE_HTTPS=1
Also if you are running behind nginx you want to add the following to your config: proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
