DESCRIPTIONconfig-model-edit will provides a Perl/Tk graphical interface to edit configuration models that will be used by Config::Model.
Config::Model is a general purpose configuration framework based on configuration models (See Config::Model for details).
This configuration model is also expressed as structured data. This structure data is structured and follow a set of rules which are described for humans in Config::Model.
The structure and rules documented in Config::Model are also expressed in a model in the files provided with Config::Model::Itself.
Hence the possibity to verify, modify configuration data provided by Config::Model can also be applied on configuration models using the same user interface as config-edit.
The model editor program is config-model-edit.
USAGE"config-model-edit" will read and write model file from "./lib/Config/Model/models".
When you specify a "-model" options, only configuration models matching this options will be loaded. I.e.
config-model-edit -model Xorg
will load models "Xorg" (file "Xorg.pl") and all other "Xorg::*" like "Xorg::Screen" (file "Xorg/Screen.pl").
- Mandatory option that specifies the configuration model to be edited.
- -plugin-file foo.pl
this option can be used to create model plugins. A model plugin is an addendum to
an existing model. The resulting file will be saved in a ".d" directory besides the
original file to be taken into account.
$ config-model-edit -model Debian::Dpkg -plugin-file my-plugin.pl # perform additions to Debian::Dpkg and Debian::Dpkg::Control::Source and save $ find lib -name my-plugin.pl lib/Config/Model/models/Debian/Dpkg.d/my-plugin.pl lib/Config/Model/models/Debian/Dpkg/Control/Source.d/my-plugin.pl
- Read model from system files, i.e. from installed files, not from "./lib" directory.
- Provides a full stack trace when exiting on error.
- Load file even if error are found in data. Bad data are loaded, but should be cleaned up before saving the model. See menu "File -> check" in the GUI.
- Returns a dot file that represent the structure of the configuration model. "include" are represented by solid lines. Class usage (i.e. "config_class_name" parameter) is represented by dashed lines. The name of the element is attached to the dashed line.
- -dump [ file ]
Dump configuration content on STDOUT or in the specified with
By default, dump only custom values, i.e. different from application built-in values or model default values. See -dumptype option for other types of dump
- -dumptype [ full | preset | custom ]
- Choose to dump every values (full), only preset values or only customized values (default)
- -load <cds_file_to_load> | -
- Load model from cds file (using Config::Model serialisation format, typically done with -dump option). This option can be used with "-save" to directly save a model loaded from the cds file or from STDIN.
- -load-yaml <yaml_file_to_load> | -
- Load configuration data in model from YAML file. This option can be used with "-save" to directly save a model loaded from the YAML file or from STDIN.
- Dump a model in YAML format
- Force a save of the model even if no edition was done. This option is useful to migrate a model when Config::Model model feature changes.
- Directory where to read and write model
- -open-item 'path'
In graphical mode, force the UI to open the node specified. E.g.
-open_item 'class:Fstab::FsLine element:fs_mntopts rules'
LOGGINGAll Config::Model logging was moved from klunky debug and verbose prints to Log::Log4perl. Logging can be configured in the following files:
Without these files, the following Log4perl config is used:
log4perl.logger=WARN, Screen log4perl.appender.Screen = Log::Log4perl::Appender::Screen log4perl.appender.Screen.stderr = 0 log4perl.appender.Screen.layout = Log::Log4perl::Layout::PatternLayout log4perl.appender.Screen.layout.ConversionPattern = %d %m %n
Log4Perl categories are shown in ``LOGGING'' in config-edit
