Hi, As I mentioned above, when I ran cat “.bashrc”, it returned “export GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE=playground”. Doesn’t that mean bash accepted the command and placed the request in the .bashrc file as it should? Before I put “export GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE=playground” in the .profile file, should I remove it from the .bashrc file? Thanks.
I just did a search for the .bashrc file and found it. It was just created today and only contains the code you specified. Can I just delete the file or should I try to clear it?
I cleared the .bashrc file and ran the command in the.profile file. When I echoed it I got: “-bash: export: `GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE=playground’: not a valid identifier”
“export GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE=playground” is in the .profile file.
I ran a Gatsby project and Graphiql came up in localhost. I guess we’re not there yet, lol.
If I can’t get the env variable to work, I have another idea. I will be creating a Gatsby template project. In that I can set “playground”.
Making some progress: Ran echo ‘export GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE=“playground”’ >> ~/.bash_profile. It was accepted without error and echo $GATSBY_GRAPHQL_IDE returned playground. But there was no change within the Gatsby program.
