Support config deep merging and inheritance #2496

merged 4 commits into from Feb 24, 2016


Copy link

commented Feb 21, 2016

A config.yml, wp-cli.yml or wp-cli.local.yml configuration file now supports two configuration parameters:

  merge: true
  inherit: <file>.yml

merge will merge any argument definition, fixing #2069.

inherit supports inheriting an arbitrary YAML file, fixing #1063

@wp-cli/committers Ideas on a better way to define these config file arguments? I like their intent, but I'm not completely happy with this implementation.

Another option would be to make them top-level arguments, e.g:

inherit: wp-cli.yml

However, this has the potential to conflict with argument definition for a command called inherit

Use `_` to denote config config
`_` is unlikely to ever be a command, and is colloquially understood to
be "private"
