Hello! I'm having a super simple issue that I hope someone can assist with. Using dagster version
1.3.10
For some reason when I am running
dagit
(and
dagster-daemon
), the env variable
DAGSTER_HOME
is not getting picked up. This is how I'm calling it:
Copy code
$ DAGSTER_HOME=~/dagster/ dagit -h 0.0.0.0 -p 3000
Usage: dagit [OPTIONS]
Try 'dagit --help' for help.

Error: No arguments given and no [tool.dagster] block in pyproject.tonml found.
The above error seems to indicate that some arguments were missing (if i want to explicitly point to a workspace file, which i dont). My other suspicion is that the
DAGSTER_HOME
variable is not being picked up When I run the above command within the
DAGSTER_HOME
path, it correctly picks up the workspace and dagster.yaml files in
DAGSTER_HOME
but the logs seem to still indicate that it is not picking up
DAGSTER_HOME
since I see the following:
Copy code
dagit - INFO - To persist information across sessions, set the environment variable DAGSTER_HOME to a directory to use
Thoughts? I've tried a bunch of different combinations to get this working but nothing is working 😞 . Any help is appreciated

Do you know that you can create a ".env" file in which you can define your variable ? This file is automatically detected by dagit if it is located in your dagster project.

Hmm, it could be something else, but the immediate thing is that the bash snippet you sent has a typo and says DAGTER_HOME

I'd like my
dagit
and
dagster-daemon
instances to run multiple different code locations -- thus a
.env
file doesnt work for my use case

Another one could be your toml file. If the above recc doesn't fix it, what does your toml file look like?

Thanks @Tim Castillo -- that was indeed a typo, I fixed the above. Unfortunately still having the same issues
Aren't toml files meant to be used within a project? In my case id like the dagit/daemon to run against multiple different code locations and projects I think that error message is just complaining that it couldnt find DAGSTER_HOME so it expects certain arguments to be set in order to point to an appropriate python file, module or workspace file. When I
cd
into the dagster home directory it works fine

Do you mean, for example, that you want 2 code locations (foo and bar) and
dagit
would be accessing
foo
and the daemon is running
bar
?
