topl

Build Status NPM version

JavaScript (Node.js and browser) meets TOML.

Supports most recent TOML spec (v0.2.0).

What?

It's Tom's Obvious, Minimal Language.

Why?

Why not?

Okay, but why in Node.js and the browser?

Because it's time to have a simple config language that works across all platforms, not just one.

How to install

npm install topl

How to use

Node.js

Bootstrap it

./script/bootstrap

Require it

var topl = require('topl');

require('fs').readFile('<path to toml file>', function(err, data) {

});

Browser
