Looks like your project ID isn’t pulling through, take a look at:

This should have the project ID.

Can you log-out your environment variables to see if they’re being read?

Let me try that. Thanks.

Ok. I started to console.log the environment variables (although I wasn't sure where) but when I opened getClient, it was giving me the following Typescript error under config in the line
export const sanityClient = new PicoSanity(config);

Argument of type '{ apiVersion: string; dataset: string; projectID: string; useCdn: boolean; }' is not assignable to parameter of type 'ClientConfig'.
  Property 'projectId' is missing in type '{ apiVersion: string; dataset: string; projectID: string; useCdn: boolean; }' but required in type 'ClientConfig'.ts(2345)
client.d.ts(5, 3): 'projectId' is declared here.
(alias) const config: {
    apiVersion: string;
    dataset: string;
    projectID: string;
    useCdn: boolean;
import config

I am only just learning TS so maybe I'll redo this without it in Remix and learn it later.

Ok. Its fixed. Not sure what I did wrong but I copy/pasted your config file from the repo into mine and changed ONLY the ProjectID (and commented out my entire config). The TS error disappeared from getClient and the page works. No more error. I cannot see any typos in mine (but will re-re-read to find what I did wrong).

AAARRRGGH! I found my error:
I wrote
instead of
in my config!
I'm horribly ashamed since I've spent 25+ years as a professional writer and copyeditor watching for those kinds of errors!

😂 easily done! Been there!
