configstore

Easily load and persist config without having to think about where and how

The config is stored in a JSON file located in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or ~/.config.
Example: ~/.config/configstore/some-id.json

If you need this for Electron, check out electron-store instead.
And check out conf for a more modern version of configstore.

Install

$ npm install configstore

Usage

import Configstore from 'configstore'; const packageJson = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync('./package.json', 'utf8')); // Create a Configstore instance. const config = new Configstore(packageJson.name, {foo: 'bar'}); console.log(config.get('foo')); //=> 'bar' config.set('awesome', true); console.log(config.get('awesome')); //=> true // Use dot-notation to access nested properties. config.set('bar.baz', true); console.log(config.get('bar')); //=> {baz: true} config.delete('awesome'); console.log(config.get('awesome')); //=> undefined

API

Configstore(packageName, defaults?, options?)

Returns a new instance.

packageName

Type: string

Name of your package.

defaults

Type: object

Default config.

options

Type: object

globalConfigPath

Type: boolean
Default: false

Store the config at $CONFIG/package-name/config.json instead of the default $CONFIG/configstore/package-name.json. This is not recommended as you might end up conflicting with other tools, rendering the "without having to think" idea moot.

configPath

Type: string
Default: Automatic

Please don't use this option unless absolutely necessary and you know what you're doing.

Set the path of the config file. Overrides the packageName and globalConfigPath options.

Instance
