For convenience, @joystick.js/node offers a named export origin that you can reference in your code to get the current HTTP origin for the app.

import { origin } from '@joystick.js/node';

In development, the origin value is equal to http://localhost:<app_port> (e.g., http://localhost:2600). In a non-development environment, the origin value is mapped to the value of process.env.ROOT_URL (e.g., https://myapp.com).

Using the origin value is highly recommended as it helps to avoid bugs in code that need to reference the current app URL (e.g., when sending an email with a clickable link).
