#2811 ✓invalid

environment files do not load correctly

Reported by dirkbj | June 17th, 2009 @ 03:45 AM | in 2.x

When I create a new rails project in rails 2.3.2 and I add the following lines to the following environment files:

ENV['load_test'] = 'in environement'

ENV['load_test'] = 'in development'

When I run the console for the development environment and ask for the value of ENV['load_test'], I get 'in environement', but I should get 'in development'.

    You are probably specifying ENV['load_test'] = 'in environement' after the block. If you specify it before the block in environment.rb, the development.rb's settings will take precedence. The development.rb runs in the context of the Rails initializer block, so if you make changes at the end of environment.rb after the development.rb file had loaded, then the changes in environment.rb will take precedence.

    I've tested this behavior in Rails 2.2.x and it worked the same in that version as well.

    You are absolutely correct. Sorry for the chatter.
