		day_sunny: [
			"Today is a sunny day",
			"It's a beautiful day"
		],
		snow: [
			"Snowball battle!"
		],
		rain: [
			"Don't forget your umbrella"
		]
	}
}

		],

			"You look sexy!",
			"Looking good today!"
		],
		evening: [
			"Wow, you look hot!",
			"You look nice!",
			"Hi, sexy!"
		]
	}
}

Multi-line compliments:

Use \n to split compliment text into multiple lines, e.g. First line.\nSecond line. will be shown as:

First line.
Second line.

External Compliment File

You may specify an external file that contains the three compliment arrays. This is particularly useful if you have a large number of compliments and do not wish to crowd your config.js file with a large array of compliments. Adding the remoteFile variable will override an array you specify in the configuration file.

This file must be straight JSON. Note that the array names need quotes around them ("morning", "afternoon", "evening", "snow", "rain", etc.).

Example compliments.json file:

{
    "anytime" : [
        "Hey there sexy!"
    ],
    "morning" : [
        "Good morning, sunshine!",
        "Who needs coffee when you have your smile?",
        "Go get 'em, Tiger!"
    ],
    "afternoon" : [
        "Hitting your stride!",
        "You are making a difference!",
        "You're more fun than bubble wrap!"
    ],
    "evening" : [
        "You made someone smile today, I know it.",
        "You are making a difference.",
        "The day was better for your efforts."
    ]
}
