C3 Environment Banner Extension for Magento 2
Tell at a glance if you are in a production, staging or dev environment - visual banners on frontend and admin
For any Magento user who has both a live site and a test/staging site.
Have you ever performed an action - deleted a product or created a promotion live, only to realise that you've accidentally done it on the production site rather than a development copy? Be honest now.
If so, this extension is for you. It adds a discrete corner banner to the frontend of non-production websites (fail-safe - if it doesn't know what environment it is in then it assumes it is on a production server). It is more striking on the admin side, where the entire title bar is colour-coded, and a border added to the page so that no matter how long the page (I'm looking at you, system config), you'll always have a visual reminder of which environment you are in.
How it works
The environment is picked up from the commonly used APPLICATION_ENV environment variable. This is set by the web-server, and for apache it just means adding in a single line to your .htaccess file. e.g. SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "staging"
Initially set up with some standard environments - production (nothing shown on front-end), development, staging and preview. You can add more by going to store->config->advanced->environment banner.
