Make iodocs module friendly, so it can be installed as a dependency: index.js created, so a config file can be injected.

After that, this is possible:

var iodocs = require('iodocs')({
    "title" : "I/O Docs -",
    "address": "",
    "port" : 5000,
    "apiConfigDir" : "../../docs",
    "debug" : false,
    "sessionSecret" : "12345",
    "basicAuth" : {
      "username" : "",
      "password" : ""
    "redis" : {
      "host" : "localhost",
      "port" : 6379,
      "password" : "",
      "database" : "0"

Let me discuss this with @mansilladev and work out a few things regarding the config changes @rowanhill has proposed first. Primarily I'd like to avoid writing a config file to the filesystem.


Sure, we can do this in other ways, but my point is to make it useable as a dependency through npm.


Any updates? Please ping me, if I can help you.

@gergelyke it's a great idea to enable loading iodocs as an npm module and config file injected. as @mtougeron mentioned it is not necessary to write the config file this way. I also don't see the need for the index file. changing the portion of app.js that reads the file to ignore that file if config is passed in would be enough. if you want to make those changes we can go ahead and merge this feature. let me know if you have any questions.
