Readme for configurator-

[back to package description]

Welcome to configurator

This is a library for configuring Haskell daemons and programs.

Its features include:

  • Automatic, dynamic reloading in response to modifications to configuration files.

  • A simple, but flexible, configuration language, supporting several of the most commonly needed types of data, along with interpolation of strings from the configuration or the system environment (e.g. $(HOME)).

  • Subscription-based notification of changes to configuration properties.

  • An import directive allows the configuration of a complex application to be split across several smaller files, or configuration data to be shared across several applications.

Configuration file format

For details of the configuration file format, see the Haddock documentation.
