Hi, Can someone tell me the proper way to enter the projectID using ENV’s in the sanity.json. If I hard code, works great, anything else and and it’s not finding the projectId. ENV’s are in .env.local
"api": {
    "projectId": "PLACEHOLDER_ENV_VARIABLES_WILL_HANDLE_FOR_US",
    "dataset": "PLACEHOLDER_ENV_VARIABLES_WILL_HANDLE_FOR_US"
  }

They need to be in studio folder and be named
.env.development
and
.env.production
I think

Makes sense, production is working, it’s just localhost that is not finding the project ID. I put in the studio folder

Hey guys, I am facing the same problem, and I followed the instructions of
user T
(removed the api section from sanity.json), and I placed a .env.development in the root folders with the variables SANITY_STUDIO_API_PROJECT_ID and SANITY_STUDIO_API_DATASET defined.However, when I run sanity start, sanity says "Project configuration required before starting studio" and forces me to select a project or create a new one ...

Any ideas how I could fix that?
