derconf

The config!

Simple config loader for node. Derconf will search a number of directories and return one JSON object that is a combination of all of them.

npm install derconf

usage

var derconf = require('derconf');

// Default usage will look for the files ~/config.json and ./config.json and return the combination of them
// files that are loaded last will override previous files
var myconfig = derconf();


// Config files that are loaded need to be JSON files (i.e. loadable via require)
var myconfig = derconf({
  '*': [
    '~/my_config_file.json',
    './a_different_config_file.json',
    './config/yet_another_file.json'
  ]
});

// derconf is also environment aware, letting you choose different configs for different environments
// Config files specified by environment keys will ALWAYS override default configs
var myconfig = derconf({
  '*': [
    '~/base_config.json'
  ],
  'development': [
    './development.config.json'
  ],
  'production': [
    './secret_config_location/production.config.json'
  ]
});
