How to set a default environment?

See original GitHub issue

I’ve trouble setting a default environment. I tried your example hook ( but this seems to just return a list of possible envs? I thought with that running httpyac test.http -e dev,prev could be simplified to just httpyac test.http. Any advice how else this could be achieved?

As I could see this could be a feature demanded quite often, what about ‘native’ support with sth like:

  "$shared": {
    "host": "https://mydoman"
  "$default": "dev",
  "dev": {
    "user": "mario",
    "password": "123456"
  "prod": {
    "user": "mario",
    "password": "password$ecure123"

The solution would probably be to provide a $default environment in addition to $shared that is loaded when no environment is present.

provideEnvironments is needed to allow selection of environments in VSCode. provideVariables is the hook you need. You get current environment selection and can fill your defaults if no env is selected (undefined or empty array)
