A node.js convention/library for supporting multiple nconf settings with inheritance.

|- app.js
|- defaults.json
|- local.js-dist

Structure your app like this and defaults.json is loaded, then defaults-$NODE_ENV.json, then local.json if it exists. If none of these files exist: your app is still loaded.


npm install nconfs


var conf = require('nconfs').load()

// Load extra confs:
var conf = require('nconfs').load(null, 'extras.json')

Works like nconf otherwise:

'use strict';

var express = require('express')
var conf = require('nconfs').load()

var app = express.createServer()

app.get('/', function(req, res) {
    res.send('Hello World')



Thanks to @zalun for inspiring me to write/lazily abstract this from newnewtab.
