An options parameter can be passed to the Client object:

const options = {}
const client = new Client(options)

  • schemaPaths — Routing rules to discover schemas

Environment Variables


You can use the VERIDA_ENVIRONMENT environment variable in your Node.js application to choose the environment to use by default. Create a .env file (if not already existing) in your application root and set your own options.

For example:

VERIDA_APP_NAME="My Company: My Application"
