I have Angular app which gets the data from Web API. Now to get the data normally I use below code

where API_URL is the location where the Web APIs are hosted.

What is the best way to maintain API_URL for different environment?

Like for Dev, API endpoint will be server1,   for QA , API endpoint will be in Server2 and prod will be server3
Is it just enough to have config.js and hardcode the server name based on environment?



$http.post(API_URL + "/PR", JSON.stringify(data), {
            headers: {
                'Content-Type': 'application/json'
            }
        }
        ).success(function (response) {

        }
        ).error(function (error) {
        });
