If I run sanity cli commands when does it use .env.production and .env.development?Or is there no difference? Say running sanity deploy vs sanity export?

By default, the
commands runs in
mode, while all other commands run in
At least I know I am not going crazy 😅, there is indeed a difference.

So if I run
and I do not specify I wanna be in production mode, the cli is going to pick up what is in .env.development.

I have another question that relates to the above.
I want to use a different dataset for development and production.
And as far as I understand, I can only deploy one Studio, so if I run
sanity deploy
it will deploy the studio with the dataset specified in .env.production.
However, if I run
sanity graphql deploy
with two different datasets, that should create two different APIs, correct?

Yes, you can create two different graphql endpoints for your different datasets. In the Studio, you could just configure two different workspaces within the same Studio.

Thanks, I did not know about workspaces.
