Ember-CLI ships with support for managing your application's environment. Ember-CLI will build an environment config file at config/environment. Here, you can define an ENV object for each environment (development, test and production). For now, this is limited to the three environments mentioned.

The ENV object contains two important keys: 1) EmberENV, and 2) APP. The first can be used to define Ember feature flags (see the Feature Flags guide). The second can be used to pass flags/options to your application instance.

You can access these environment variables in your application code by importing from ../config/environment or your-application-name/config/environment.

For example:

{% highlight javascript %} import ENV from 'your-application-name/config/environment';

if (ENV.environment === 'development') { // ... } {% endhighlight %}

Ember-CLI assigns ENV.EmberENV to window.EmberENV, which Ember reads on application initialization.

Additionally, Ember-CLI contains a number of environment-dependent helpers for assets:

It is now also possible to override command line options by creating a file in your app's root directory called .ember-cli and placing desired overrides in it.

For example, a common desire is to change the port that ember-cli serves the app from. It's possible to pass the port number directly to ember server in the command line, e.g. ember server --port 8080. If you wish to make this change a permanent configuration change, make the .ember-cli file and add the options you wish to pass to the server in a hash.

{% highlight javascript %} { "port": 8080 } {% endhighlight %}
