I am trying to use publicRuntimeConfig throughout my new appDir based app. I'm getting an error about deconstructing getConfig(). Based on the help I think this may be because my app is trying to statically render. If my page doesn't require a fetch but does want to use getConfig what is the recommendation?

Samer error:
Error: Cannot destructure property 'publicRuntimeConfig' of 'next_config__WEBPACK_IMPORTED_MODULE_1___default(...)(...)' as it is undefined.

hence why this is discouraged, it's a legacy feature

What would be the preferred way to have configuration (things you want to parameterize for the app but have available everywhere?)

probably env vars

but those can also only be read on the server right?

if you prefix them with NEXT_PUBLIC_ they can be read from the client too
