Easier handling of configuration for client-based apps.


An easier way of handling config options for client-side apps. Specially when it comes to changing settings and upgrading.

var config = require('getset').load('/path/to/config/file');
config.set('foo', 'bar');
config.get('foo'); // 'bar'{
  if (!err) console.log('Saved successfully!')
var config = require('getset');
config.load('/file/that/will/be/read/asynchronously', function(err){
  if (!err) config.update('foo', 'bar'); // will set() and save() 
  config.on('changed', function(){
    console.log('Hold on, someone just changed something!')
  • Singleton. Require from anywhere and you'll get the same object.
  • Uses a single, readable .ini file for persistence.
  • Restricts setting key/values to what's already in there.
  • Can sync with updated/new config files without overwriting existing values.
  • Can watch the config file for changes and reload + notify if it happens.
  • Has no dependencies.
