blitz start

Alias: blitz s

Starts the Blitz production server.

This is a super thin wrapper over Next CLI to improve environment variable loading.

blitz dev -e staging

It does the following:

  1. Loads correct .env.X and .env.X.local files based on the -e X flag that you specify. Ex: -e staging loads .env.staging.
  2. Sets process.env.APP_ENV to the env name. Ex: -e staging => APP_ENV=staging.
  3. Passes all other arguments directly to the next build command


--hostname-HSet the hostname to use for the server."localhost"
--port-pSet the port you'd like the server to listen on.3000
--inspectEnable the Node.js inspectorfalse
--env-eSet app environment name. Read more.None



Make sure to run blitz build before running blitz start

blitz start -H -p 5632
