A Rails plugin that allows per-user database.yml and environment.rb files
Ruby
branch: master

README

DOT RAILS - a plugin that enables per-user, out-of-band configuration files.

With this plugin in your rails app, you can have your own environment.rb 
and database.yml files inside a .rails directory on your home directory. 

The database config (~/.rails/{app-name}-database.yml) replaces the values 
defined in config/database.yml for your application. Where as the environment
files (~/.rails/{app-name}-environment.rb and {app-name}-{RAILS_ENV}.rb)
are loaded after the "official" environment.rb and environments/*.rb files,
allowing you to define additional settings.

As you can see, both file names are prefixed by your "application name". The
plugin tries to guess it by looking at the name of the directory containing
your rails app, but you can override this by defining a RAILS_APP environment
variable or ruby constant.

POSSIBLE FILES:
  {app name}-database.yml         Replaces your app config/database.yml

  {app name}-pre-environment.rb   Loaded before Initializer.run,
                                  with no particular context.

  {app name}-environment.rb       Loaded after Initializer.run, 
                                  with no particular context.

  {app name}-{RAILS_ENV}.rb       Loaded after the official environments file,
                                  it receives a "config" local variable.

POSSIBLE LOCATIONS:
   $DOT_RAILS_PATH
   ~/.rails
   $HOME/.rails
   ../      # this means you can place it next to your app directory
