Flexible lightweight configuration loader for Node
$ npm install config-node
var config = require'config-node';console.logconfigserverport;
config will contain the contents of the configuration file named
'development', on the folder
It can be a JSON, a JS that fills
module.exports or a directory with an index.js inside.
You probably noticed there's a function call in there. It needs to be added once to load the data. This is where you can put your options. You'll probably do that on your main js file, in all the other ones you only require it:
// in db.jsvar config = require'config-node';console.logconfigdbport;
These are the defaults:
var config = require'config-node'dir: 'config' // where to look for filesext: null // spoil the fun, tell me which one it is ('' for directory). Improves performance.env: processenvNODE_ENV || 'development' // set which one instead of smart defaults;
In order to support more formats beyond json, js and directories. You add a file with a different extension to the config folder and pass an option named as the extension with a function that takes the file string data and returns an object, synchronously!
var config = require'config-node'return convertPNGtoObjectSomehowdata;;
Check the examples to see more use cases.
extoption this module is mostly a smart require.
