in case you are getting this error after updating kubectl

error: exec plugin: invalid apiVersion "client.authentication.k8s.io/v1alpha1"

Double check the current version

 kubectl version

if you are at Major:1 and Minor: 24, then you probably need to downgrade to 1.23.6

How to do that on Apple Silicon /M1

cd /tmp
sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/kubectl
curl -LO "https://dl.k8s.io/release/v1.23.6/bin/darwin/arm64/kubectl"
chmod +x ./kubectl
sudo mv ./kubectl /usr/local/bin/kubectl
sudo chown root: /usr/local/bin/kubectl
kubectl version

The you can read them in react by accessing`process.env.REACT_APP_ENVIRONMENT`Note 1: In my current version, it didn't work with variable named PROCESS_ENV
Note 2: the prefix process.env is mandatory for the variable
