YACL

DESCRIPTION

YACL is your application configuration library.

FEATURES

Yacl is a full featured commandline and application configuration library. It pulls together the different components of a system that provide application configuration properties:

  • Commandline options

  • Environment Variables

  • Configuration directory

  • Configuration files

  • Global Defaults

It allows you to define the order and priority of the various contributors to the configuration in a fairly easy way.

Examples

There are two full examples in the examples directory:

myapp-simple

This uses the Yacl::Simple library to quickly define commandline options, global defaults, configuration directory and environment parsing all in short amout of code using a dsl.

myapp

This is a more full featured approach that you may want to look at should you have more complex application configuration needs. Functionally it is very similar to myapp-simple
