Thanks for your article! I think env-cmd needs -f argument to load the custom file correctly. Otherwise it fails and load .env file by default.

Thanks for this information. When this article was written, it was using env-cmd version 8.0.2. It was not required -f option. I also just tested the latest version which is 9.0.3 without the parameter and caused an issue. As a result, when pointing a custom env file, it is required. Thank you so much @foxbit19 .
